This volume celebrates the 15th anniversary of the Literary Onomastics Conference. The 21 essays presented here show how the study of names can illuminate works of all ages and genres. The essays range over epics and comic books; embrace Shakespeare, Moliere Kafka, Carl Sandburg, and Toni Morrison, among many others; discuss the histories of names and their sounds; reveal how names identify a moment in time and how they communicate across the ages. Co-published with the American Name Society.
