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.
