  • Milton's Postures: Prostrating, Grinding, Leaning

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: "Like a wild beast, content to go," John Milton's Samson believes his own subjugation is a consequence of bodily appetites.1 According to Samson, the body's sexual and material desires have corroded the Nazirite's commitment to piety and dignity. In his own self-understanding, the enslaved and debilitated character has reduced him to base sensuality or mere embodiment. And yet, Milton's dramatic poem explores how a willing body can guide an accommodating subject to embrace God or forgive a partner. Samson Agonistes is Milton's most perplexing meditation on the human body, which may be one of the reasons scholars interested in embodiment have focused largely on the body as political metaphor for empire or ...

  • The Hall of Honor: Chaucer, Hawes, and the Conclusion to Gerard Legh's
           Accedens of Armory

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In the dedication to his Workes of Armorie, deuyded into three bookes (1572), John Bossewell praises those who preserve knowledge, noting that "such one was of late specially in this kind of Herehaultry, a very fruteful and worthy writer master Gerard Leigh."1 Legh's appearance is to be expected: not only did Bossewell rely on Legh's Accedens of Armory (1562)2 for a great deal of his material related to arms, but Richard Tottell printed both of these early and influential heraldic works. More surprising, perhaps, is Legh's second appearance in the front matter to The Workes of Armorie. This comes in an elaborate allegorical poem, called "Cilenus censure of the aucthor, in his high court of Herehaultry," written by ... Read More

  • Venus and Adonis The Rape of Lucrece, and the Shakespeare Canon

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This essay examines the role of William Shakespeare's two printed poems, Venus and Adonis (1593) and The Rape of Lucrece (1594), in his dramatic career. The relation between the poems and the plays is one of the oldest topics of Shakespeare criticism, dating to Charles Gildon in 1710.2 The modern conversation was set in the early nineteenth century by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, who wrote of "myriad-minded Shakespeare": "I mean the 'Venus and Adonis' and the 'Lucrece'; works which give at once strong promises of the strength of … his genius."3 The idea of the narrative poems as a "promise" of a (future) drama has become one of the most durable templates for thinking about Shakespeare's life and career. In 1992, Ted ... Read More

  • John Donne's Colonial Innocence

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: John Donne was a voracious reader of Spanish legal texts, religious polemic, and accounts of the conquest and colonization of the Americas. Throughout his prose works, in particular, he cites authors such as José de Acosta, Bartolomé de las Casas, Antonio de Córdoba, and Domingo de Soto. What is more, Donne's interest in Spanish colonial affairs was practical and ideological as well as imaginative and intellectual. In 1596, Donne sailed with Robert Devereux, Earl of Essex, and Walter Ralegh to attack the Spanish port of Cádiz with the objective of capturing Spanish treasure ships arrived from the Americas. Furthermore, Donne pursued, albeit unsuccessfully, a secretary post with the Virginia Company in 1607, and in ... Read More

  • Correction, Modernization, and Elaboration in a Seventeenth-Century
           Translation of John Lydgate's Troy Book

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Readers in the early seventeenth century could choose from a variety of English Troy narratives. They might look to George Chapman's translation of Homer's Iliad (London, 1609) or to Thomas Phaer and Thomas Twyne's translation of Virgil's Aeneid (London, 1584). They might look onstage to William Shakespeare's Troilus and Cressida (London, 1609) or to Thomas Heywood's Age plays (1611–1632). Or they might look to older English narratives still influential at this time: William Caxton's Recuyell of the Histories of Troy (1473), the first book printed in English, remained in print through the late seventeenth century; John Lydgate's fifteenth-century Troy Book was reprinted in 1555; and an anonymous modernization of ...

  • Milton and the Education Monopoly

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In the late spring of 1659, tithes were again the subject of public scrutiny in London. The English church had managed to survive the Interregnum with its finances intact, but Oliver Cromwell's death in September of 1658 had thrown his pragmatic settlement between civil and ecclesiastical power in doubt, and when the Rump Parliament reconvened at Westminster, debate flared up once more over an issue that had never quite cooled off. Tithes, compulsory payments made by parishioners, were meant as compensation for ministerial training at Oxford and Cambridge. If Oxford and Cambridge were producing disloyal theologians, liable to "backslide" into royalism, as many of the staunchest republicans feared, it was unclear ... Read More
