Blake Bronson-Bartlett




Blake Bronson-Bartlett is currently a Ballard/Seashore Dissertation-Year Fellow in the English Department at the University of Iowa. His dissertation, titled “Whitman’s Inscriptions: Writing-in-Transit and the Urban Networks of Nineteenth-Century America,” examines the way nineteenth-century American authors used the “blank book”—a generic term for diaries and memorandum books—as a medium of civic engagement. He is the editor of a volume of essays on the prose writings of Walt Whitman for the Nineteenth-Century American Literature series (2013). His scholarship on Walt Whitman in French translation can be found on The Walt Whitman Archive. His book reviews and interviews have appeared in The Believer (2011) and The Seneca Review (online, 2010). Current projects also include his collaboration with poet Robert Fernandez on translations of Stéphane Mallarmé’s verse and manuscripts, the first of which were published in Lana Turner: A Journal Poetry and Opinion (2013).
