PETER HULME         

Emeritus Professor in Literature

at the University of Essex


I recently completed a critical edition of the previously unpublished autobiography ofthe Jamaican writer, W. Adolphe Roberts (1884-1962), which was published by the University of the West Indies Press in 2015.

My current project, provisionally titled The Dinner at Gonfarone's: Salomón de la Selva in Nueva York, 1915-1919, looks at the relationships between Hispanic and Anglo writers in New York in the early twentieth century.  Other projects bubbling away in the background involve the Victorian spy Henri Le Caron, the writing associated with the Fair Play for Cuba Committee, the US poet Jonathan Williams, the Irish journalist and activist, James J. O'Kelly, and the relationship between the Brontës and Dentdale.
