Description

Much early English literature depicts punishment, but while the structures of these scenes may seem similar, the rhetorical aims of these bloody episodes have been as diverse as the genres in which they are found. This panel will explore the effects of seeing violence in a body of literature that spans a fascinating historical shift concerning the role of the state and its efforts to shape the human beings living within its boundaries.
