The Lyric Voice in Lady Mary Wroth's
Phamphilia to Amphilanthus

by Danila Sokolov, PhD

Wednesday, Mar 14, 2018 | 7:30 pm
Grace-Westminster United Church

(Social Hall, 505 10th Street East)

As one of the first collections of love poetry written by a woman in Renaissance England, Lady Mary Wroth's sonnet sequence Pamphilia to Amphilanthus offers an opportunity to investigate strategies of writing feminine lyric in a masculine literary culture. This talk will address how Wroth reclaims the poetic legacies of Petrarichism and Ovidianism to construct her feminine voice.

All are welcome.
