Renaissance Papers 2011 by Andrew Eric Shifflett ( )
5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Beginning with three essays on Shakespeare: on '1 Henry 4', 'Love's Labour's Lost', and 'Titus Andronicus', this year's volume then turns to links between Renaissance drama and the wider culture, with essays on Marlowe's 'Massacre at Paris', experimental plays of the dawn of the seventeenth century, and 'Bartholomew Fair' and 'Othello'. Next come essays on a trio of lyric poets: Sir Philip Sidney, Fulke Greville, and George Herbert. Three final essays focus on topics in the history of ideas: Trinitarianism in Spenser, social satire and Christian exemplarity, and the censorship of Cardinal Bell
Renaissance papers by Andrew Eric Shifflett ( )
5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Renaissance Papers collects the best scholarly essays submitted each year to the Southeastern Renaissance Conference. The present volume features essays from the 2010 conference held at Davidson College in North Carolina. It opens with two essays focused on Shakespeare: one considering the special force of Iago's villainy, the other situating 2 Henry VI in relation to the "clowning" of the Marprelate tracts. The volume then turns to links between religion, rhetoric, technology, and theatrical practice, with essays on the oral street culture of St. Paul's Cross, cosmetics in Thomas Dekker's Whore of Babylon, and the mixing of genres in George Peele's David and Bethsabe. Following these multidisciplinary investigations are essays taking more traditional approaches to two of the most fascinating figures in Renaissance studies: John Donne, whose skill at epistolary insult may have been the real cause of his father-in-law's outrage, and Pietro Aretino, whose "afterlife" in England is engagingly treated. The volume closes with essays showcasing a range of interests in the history of ideas: the metaphysics of light in Patrizi and Caravaggio, the representation of common law courts and special tribunals in Spenser's Faerie Queene, and the anthropocentrism of Sir Francis Bacon. Contributors: Jackson C. Boswell, Jason E. Cohen, Thomas W. Dabbs, George L. Geckle, M. Thomas Hester, Delane Karalow, Robert Kilgore, Kirk Melnikoff, James Schiavoni, Andrew Tumminia. Andrew Shifflett and Edward Gieskes are Associate Professors of English at the University of South Carolina, Columbia
