Greetings and welcome to the 17th Mythopoeic Conference. This year is the Centennial of the birth of Charles Williams and to help commemorate that, we have a number of Williams papers and a keynote Williams panel. The Conference theme “The Daughters of Beatrice: Women in Fantasy” springs from one of Williams' concerns in his fiction and poetry – the Beatrician experience. Heroines in fiction have grown since Dante, and I hope we will discover some of that growth during the Conference. We will look at the daughters of Beatrice and discover the changes in their presence in literature.
