Rhetoric and literature obviously have an intricate shared history in early modern studies evidenced by the likes of George Puttenham’s Art of English Poesie (1579) among other manuals and treatises, but studies continue to demonstrate that there is more to be examined at this scholarly intersection. By applying research in cognitive studies, for instance, Raphael Lyne offers a new perspective on Shakespeare’s use of rhetoric, and in a forthcoming piece Michael Ullyot and Adam Bradley employ digital technologies in order to study the applications of rhetorical tropes like gradatio in early modern drama more broadly. This panel seeks to discuss what other innovations or findings are possible with or without novel applications.
