Alice Walker's story "Everyday Use" uses quilts as a symbol for her
characters' familial past. These quilts, though certainly valuable
artistically, must still be of everyday use to the family. The quilts
will wear out from use, certainly, but these worn squares would be, as
they've always been, replaced with new squares; the piece from
great-great-grandma's sundress might be replaced with a patch from
daddy's overalls.

CFP: Re-thinking the Renaissance Lyric (4/10/06; MMLA, 11/9/06-11/12/06)

Monday, February 27, 2006 - 5:19pm
D. K. Smith

 As Helen Vendler has written, the function of a lyric poem is to offer 'aesthetically convincing representations of feelings felt and thoughts thought.' In ways unavailable to other genres, the Renaissance lyric provides insights into the epistemological shifts and changing patterns of thought in Elizabethan and Jacobean England. This session will explore the way the Renaissance Lyric both reflected and inflected contemporary ways of thinking about issues of politics, nationalism, religion, sovereignty, and subjectivity in Early Modern England. For the Renaissance Literature and Culture panel at the Midwest Modern Language Association Conference in Chicago, November 9-12, 2006.
