To me, methought, who waited with a crowd,
There came a bark that, blowing forward, bore
King Arthur, like a modern gentleman
Of stateliest port; and all the people cried,
"Arthur is come again: he cannot die."

"Morte d'Arthur" (1842)
Alfred, Lord Tennyson

NeMLA Update 10/10

I write, with regret, to inform you that NeMLA has rescinded its offer for us to hold a session on the topic of "Afterlives of A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court."

I am grateful for the support I received from Twain scholars and indebted to my fellow panelists for their understanding of this issue.

Please contact me if you can suggest an alternate venue.
