This Book, Marie Duval, edited by Simon Grennan, Roger Sabin and Julian Waite, has been available for some time: it has been a bit of a disappointment as the critical apparatus is almost non-existent. However, this is the only way to get some of Duval’s material in print. Much more is available online t the Marie Duval Archive. I discussed Marie Duval, whom I consider strongly influenced by Edward Lear’s nonsense, and her book A Choice Collection of Queens and Kings, and Other Things here.
James Williams’s long-awaited book on Edward Lear will be published at the end of the month, but on the publisher’s website you can find a lot of information, including an intriguing table of content.
They also tell me that the catalogue on Edward Lear in Amalfi has been printed and will be available soon (I haven’t seen a paper copy yet!). Tonight at 21:00 CET, RTC QuartaRete, a local channel will broadcast a long interview with Federico Guida discussing the book (in Italian of course). The program will be broadcast also on Wednesday 19 at 14:25, Thursday 20 at 23:25, Saturday 22 at 17:25 and Sunday 23 at 18:00.
