Description

These papers consider two significant figures within Sir Philip Sidney's Circle: Lady Mary Wroth and William Herbert, Third Earl of Pembroke. Savannah Xaver's paper examines the figuration of darkness in Wroth's sonnet sequence and compares it to that of Sidney's Astrophil and Stella. Mary Ellen Lamb will focus on the intersection between music and poetry by exploring musical settings for Herbert's poems. Paul Hecht will reflect on how 21st-century dynamics and events including the #MeToo movement, the 2016 U.S. election, and the crisis in the humanities have implications for how we read and interpret Wroth's poems.
