Elizabeth Madox Roberts: Essays of Discovery and Recovery. Edited by H. R. Stoneback, Nicole Camastra, and Steven Florczyk. "This volume is the second of the two books devoted to Elizabeth Madox Roberts to be published in the same year--annus mirabilis! Before the appearance of these two volumes, more than four decades had elapsed since the last book-length critical study of Roberts was published. In many ways, this book serves as a companion piece to its immediate predecessor, Elizabeth Madox Roberts: Essays of Reassessment and Reclamation. We will not repeat what was said in the introduction to that volume regarding the history of the Elizabeth Madox Roberts Society, from whose annual conferences most of the essays in the present study emanate. It will suffice here to note that the publication of both these landmark volumes signals the celebration, in 2008, of the tenth anniversary of the Roberts Society."

Keenly Aware of the Ceremonies of Place: Essays on Elizabeth Madox Roberts. Edited by Matthew Nickel, Jessica Nickel, and H. R. Stoneback.

Our latest collection, Keenly Aware of the Ceremonies of Place displays the diversity of our organization, offering essays from seasoned Roberts scholars as well as essays of discovery from students who are still moved—almost a century later—to respond to Roberts’ prose and poetry. The title of this collection reflects a sense of what we have long been cultivating in the work of the Roberts Society: a keen awareness of the sense of ceremony and the Sense of Place in the landscapes and inscapes of the fiction and poetry of Elizabeth Madox Roberts. No writer in American Literature is more keenly aware of the ceremonies of place. A voice says What about Faulkner? And we answer (as H. R. Stoneback has been saying since his Vanderbilt Agrarian days in the 1960s): Precisely, and Roberts is what Faulkner knows. Roberts is the great under-appreciated influence on Faulkner.

Creative Work About EMR:

Coming Home: A Vision of Elizabeth Madox Roberts. Written by Gregg Neikirk, Coming Home is a play envisioning Elizabeth Madox Roberts. H. R. Stoneback writes in the Foreword the following: "This play has something for everybody, has much to offer both rooted autochthons, that is, those “sprung from the land itself,” and displaced anachthons, those seeking a vision of coming home. Neikirk cultivates this terroir admirably while suffusing the play with an overarching vision of home as the world that a writer creates in her writing. To say that Coming Home: A Vision of Elizabeth Madox Roberts belongs on the bookshelves of every Roberts aficionado and scholar is to state the obvious. It also belongs in the library of everyone who knows about leaving home and coming home, everyone who has ever thought or dreamed of writing home."

Coming Home is available for $20. Anyone interested in purchasing a copy should send a check made payable to "Tina Iraca" with updated address and your order to the EMRS Treasurer: Tina Iraca, 16 Montgomery St., Tivoli, NY 12583.
