Session Description:

How do contemporary poets continue to engage the early modern imaginary? What does the early modern make available for contemporary poetic practice? This roundtable gathers emerging and established poets, Renaissance scholars, critics of contemporary poetry, and various permutations thereof to extend a conversation that has been vibrant in practice, if less so in dedicated critical reflection.
