Postmodernism, Primitivism, Nostalgia

_Henry Street_, now in its seventh year of publication, is an inter-
national forum for graduate students of English and related disciplines.
We invite contributions of critical essays, short fiction and poetry
from graduate students in English or a related discipline. We also
welcome essays on pedagogy, the job market, graduate programs, and other
topics of interest to graduate students. We aim especially to publish and
promote innovative criticism that, in the words of one of our
contributors, "combines the personal with the scholarly."

_Henry Street_ is indexed by the MLA and the Canadian Periodicals Index.



Essays should not exceed 7000 words, and must follow MLA guidelines for
citation and presentation. All submissions, except poetry, should be
double-spaced on standard 8.5" x 11" bond. To facilitate our process of
anonymous reading, the author's name should not appear on the manuscript.

Send two copies of submissions, and include a self-addressed return
envelope accompanied either by Canadian stamps or international reply
coupons. Manuscripts submitted without SASE cannot be returned. The cover
letter must indicate the author's degree status and university affiliation.
