"The World of George Herbert"

full name / name of organization: 
Proposed session for RSA (Berlin, March 26-28, 2015)

This session is conceived as a panel on contemporary approaches to the work of George Herbert. It could deal with aspects of Herbert's cultural world as reflected in manuscript, print or digital contexts. 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 .
