It would ideally juxtapose treatments of literary aspects of Herbert's verse with discussions of his relationship to other traditions such as the Emblem, architecture, the Bible, religion, etc. Given sufficient interest, this session may be sponsored by the Medieval & Renaissance Studies Association in Israel. Send short abstracts or inquiries to Noam Flinker .
