Reworking the Classics (Fall 2010 Volume 2, Issue 1)

Welcome to the third issue of the Journal of South Texas English Studies in which we examine the theme, “Reworking the Classics: The Intersection of Popular Culture and English Studies.”

In the links below, you will find scholarly articles that discuss the retelling of classic fairytales like
Peau d'Ane (Donkeyskin), reclaimed by Robin McKinley's Deerskin, a study on the essential quality of memory in the formation of identity in Pope's 'Eloise to Abelard' and Kaufman's Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and how the various permutations of Dracula in film have changed the nature of the character over the years.

Also included in this issue are poems by Yasmin Pena, Gus Coronado, Maritza Lievanos, and Saedah Coello, and book reviews by Amy Cummins and Mimosa Stephenson.

Enjoy the issue!
