Renaissance Papers 2005

Edited by Christopher Cobb, M. Thomas Hester


Camden House



Eight new essays on topics from Shakespeare and Dryden to Donne, Bronzino, Sidney, Hutchinson, and Milton.
Renaissance Papers collects the best scholarly essays submitted each year to the Southeastern Renaissance Conference. In the 2005 volume, two essays focus on Shakespeare: one on "choric juxtaposition" in his twinned characters and one on the rhetoric of The Tempest; another essay on drama considers Dryden's critical response to Epicoene. There are two essays on John Donne, one on the choir space in his conduct of worship in St. Paul's and the other on the revisions to his Elegies. Other essays consider the influence of Castiglione on the paintings of Bronzino, the metaphor of the horse and horsemanship in Sidney's poetics, and the role of conversation in Hutchinson and Milton.

Contributors: George Walton Williams, Sara Van Den Berg, Jennifer Brady, John N. Wall, Ernest W. Sullivan II, Heather L. Holian, Anne Lake Prescott, and Boyd Berry

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