From Linguistics to Literature
Romance Studies offered to Francis M. Rogers
Francis M. Rogers, to whom the current volume is in honor of, may be a modest man in principle, but not in his academic pursuits. To call his interests broad in scope is no exaggeration as they cover the fields of linguistics, literature, philology, bibliography, travel narratives and celestial navigation, which is nicely reflected in this volume. Part I concerns general and Luso-Brazilian linguistics (<i>Bernard H. Bichakjian, John B. Jensen, Anthony J. Naro, Joseph M. Piel, Cléa Rameh</i>); Part II Medieval studies: <i>Sheila R. Ackerlind, Donald Stone Jr., Paolo Valesio, Joan B. Williamson</i>; Part III Luso-Brazilian literature (<i>Memória de Lázaro, Frederick C.H. Garcia, David T. Haberly, Jane M. Malinoff, Noami Hoki Moniz, Maria Luisa Nunes, Noêl W. Ortega, Raymond S. Sayers, Nelson H. Vieira</i>); and Part IV on travel literature (<i>Mary M. Rowan, Charity Cannon Willard</i>). This volume also contains a complete bibliography of the writings of Francis M. Rogers.
