GUIDELINES FOR MANUSCRIPT PREPARATION
Manuscripts of up to 6,000 words can be accepted for publication.
They should not be previously published, nor under consideration for publication
elsewhere. We ask that authors observe the following basic guidelines:
- All text, including quotations and notes, should be double-spaced
- Following American convention, please reserve single quotation marks
for quotations within quotations. For example: "For a long time
Parisians relieved themselves under a row of yews in the
Tuileries; driven from there by the Swiss guards, they betook themselves
to the banks of the Seine, which is equally revolting to eye and
- Quotations should be given in English, unless a specific translation
is in question. Authors are responsible for checking all quotations
and supplying complete references to existing English-language translations.

be converted to italics in the published version.
- All notes should be endnotes, and included in a separate
disk file (see below). Endnote only the first citation of a source,
otherwise use a parenthetical reference (example: (SEL, 3)).

into the main body of the text after first citation in the NOTES section.
