Description

These three papers focus on Sir Philip Sidney's The Countess of Pembroke's Arcadia, also known as the New Arcadia. Daniel Lochman will explore the role of tragic performance in creating "commiseration" and thereby "heal" readers inclined toward immorality or tyranny. Laura Price will consider the function of doubt within a scene describing an epistemological quest that follows the tropological quest pattern of original integration, disintegration, and reintegration. Kathryn DeZur will examine the representation of black servants in the Arcadia in order to interrogate what race means in the scene and how difference is delimited by placing it within the aesthetic and symbolic contexts of an emblem.
