Abstract and Keywords

According to John R. Roberts's Annotated Bibliography of Modern Criticism, 1979–1995, over one hundred books, articles, and notes on Donne's life and work have been published yearly since 1978, providing ample testimony of burgeoning critical interest in Donne studies. Items of interest have appeared in a wide variety of languages and publications, from mainstream university and commercial presses to highly specialized journals, bulletins, and newsletters. This brief article aims to indicate the international scope of this surge of interest, the nature of scholarly exchange and collaboration in Donne studies, the principal organizations that facilitate this exchange, and the value of the international scholarly community as a research tool. To that end, this article begins by considering two closely linked institutions that have provided a central focus for, and promotion of, Donne studies in the past thirty years: that is, the John Donne Society and the John Donne Journal: Studies in the Age of Donne.

Keywords: collaboration, John R. Robert, Donne studies, journals, bulletins, newsletters
