Edited by Christopher Cobb, M. Thomas Hester


Camden House



Yearly volume containing seven new essays on topics from the Metaphysical Poets to Shakespeare, Marlowe, and Milton.
Renaissance Papers is a collection of the best scholarly essays submitted each year to the Southeastern Renaissance Conference. The Conference accepts papers on all subjects relating to the Renaissance--music, art, history, literature, etc.--from scholars all over North America and the world. Of the seven essays in the 2004 volume, three have to do with the Metaphysical Poets; among the topics here are the significant use of chiasmus in the poetry of Donne and Herbert, reading Donne's Virginian Company sermon in its context, and the religion of Crashaw. Other essays consider the John Eliot emendation in The Life of King Henry V, the justice and rationality of authority in The Winter's Tale, Marlowe's poetry of allusion and substitution in Hero and Leander, and the shape of Book X of Milton's Paradise Lost.

Contributors: Anne Coldiron, Andrew Harvey, Pamela Royston Macfie, Joseph A. Porter, Jeanne Shami, Kay Gilliland Stevenson, and John N. Wall.

M. Thomas Hester is Professor of English, and Christopher Cobb is Assistant Professor of English, both at North Carolina State University.
