Florida English


Editors’ Note:

We have passed the half-decade mark, and to celebrate this landmark, the Associate Editors decided to provide a theme around which to base our sixth issue: Imagism. We chose Imagism because, quite simply, Florida and Imagism go together like peanut butter and chocolate. From the obvious Key West connection to lesser-known connections (such as you’ll read in “Shell Shocked: An Imagist on Casey Key”), Florida has served as a point of inspiration to many Imagists, and Florida English seeks to honor that spirit.

The year 2007 also marked another important milestone: a unique gathering of prominent, even legendary, scholars in Dorf Tirol, northern Italy who provided a framework for some great discussions of imagists and their continued contributions to literature. Back in the U.S., as we began a discussion with H.R. Stoneback, we thought we might be fortunate enough to have a few of these prominent scholars contribute work for the issue. What happened next is still beyond what we could have expected: Stoney agreed to let us publish the proceedings from the conference.

What you hold in your hands is our proudest accomplishment: a wonderful blend of creative and critical work by local, national, and international scholars.  Additionally, many loyal readers may have noticed other changes, all related to growth. We have grown this issue to nearly 150 pages; we have grown the size slightly to a 6x9 format; and what is not immediately evident is that our reputation continues to grow in the literary community. We have received requests for copies of Florida English from renowned university libraries. We are listed on WorldCat. And, with our 501 (c) (3) status and ISSN number, we are available to an increasing number of readers.


The front cover, a 9”x11” graphite, colored pencil, gesso, oil on paper by Joe Loccisano, is titled “Grande Deluge.”
