Ideology and desire in Renaissance poetry : the subject of Donne by Ronald Corthell( Book )

7 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on the work of Zizek and other psychoanalytic theorists, Corthell presents an alternative to new historicist ideas of "containment" by emphasizing the role of desire in the ideological work of creating, studying, and teaching Renaissance poetry. The gendered character of these activities is further critiqued by means of recent feminist work on psychoanalysis and literature. Each chapter explores the interrelationships of representation, identification, and desire, while the book as a whole gradually shifts in emphasis from new historicist concerns with representation and the social realm toward psychoanalytic themes of identification, desire, and inwardness. Analyzing both Donne's texts and Donne criticism from new historicist, feminist, and psychoanalytic perspectives, Corthell explores the reasons and desires behind our continued investment in the Renaissance, and Donne's poetry in particular

Milton and Catholicism by Ronald Corthell( Book )

9 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of original essays by literary critics and historians analyzes a wide range of Milton's writing, from his early poetry, through his mid-century political prose, to De Doctrina Christiana, which was unpublished in his lifetime, and finally to his last and greatest poems. The contributors investigate the rich variety of approaches to Milton's engagement with Catholicism and its relationship to reformed religion. The essays address latent tensions and contradictions, explore the nuances of Milton's relationship to the easy commonplaces of Protestant compatriots, and disclose the polemical strategies and tactics that often shape that engagement. The contributors link Milton and Catholicism with early modern confessional conflicts between Catholics and Protestants that in turn led to new models and standards of authority, scholarship, and interiority. In Milton's case, he deployed anti-Catholicism as a rhetorical device and the negative example out of which Protestants could shape their identity. The contributors argue that Milton's anti-Catholicism aligns with his understanding of inwardness and conscience and illuminates one of the central conflicts between Catholics and Protestants in the period. Building on recent scholarship on Catholic and anti-Catholic discourses over the English Tudor and Stuart period, new understandings of martyrdom, and scholarship on Catholic women, Milton and Catholicism provides a diverse and multifaceted investigation into a complex and little explored field in Milton studies. Contributors: Alastair Bellany, Thomas Cogswell, Thomas N. Corns, Ronald Corthell, Angelica Duran, Martin Dzelzainis, John Flood, Estelle Haan, and Elizabeth Sauer"--
