Session Description:

Bringing together a group of contemporary poets and scholars, this roundtable is conceived as a dialogue about influence and style and about the relation between two poets writing in a transitional moment of literary history. How can a reading of Donne through the lens of Spenser (or vice versa) help us better understand both poets? What would it mean to read both backwards and forwards?


Subject:

  • British Literature – Renaissance and Elizabethan
