The Romance of Sidney and Spenser - Seminar (NeMLA, April 30-May 3, 2015, Toronto)

Thursday, June 26, 2014 - 10:23am
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)

NeMLA 2015 46th Annual Convention
Toronto, April 30-May 3, 2015

The Romance of Sidney and Spenser

This seminar explores how Sidney and Spenser engage with and develop the romance framework alongside and against their contemporaries. How do these poets revise, contest, or maintain conventions of romance in their own works? How do they represent and reconcile the genre's tendency toward contradiction, conflation, and multiplicity? How do they influence later authors and contribute to the evolution of the genre and its concerns in the English tradition?
