Colloquium on the 'Legacy of the Will'

updated: 
Tuesday, December 14, 2010 - 12:59pm
Organised by The Early Modern Seminar in Scotland (EMSIS) in conjunction with the School of Humanities at Strathclyde University.

Will's semantic slipperiness fascinated the Renaissance: in all manner of English and Scots texts of the period we find 'Will too boote, and Will in over-plus'. The structural conceit of the opening line of John Donne's poem, 'The Will' exemplifies a key thematic construct to be found in much early modern literature and a prevalent intellectual thread in the culture from which this literature emerges. Donne's poem - this willed enactment of the speaker's last will and testament to the world he will shortly leave behind in death - encapsulates the polyvocal qualities of the human 'will' and all that it signifies.
