ENGLISH 114C: "Books Promiscuously Read": Varieties of Renaissance Experience

What is the point of reading? In this course we will begin by exploring the ways in which writers from Antiquity through the Renaissance attempted to answer that crucial question. Keeping in mind that to read a writer is to read a reader, we will examine central topics of the Renaissance (such as rhetoric, statecraft, religion, gender) while thinking about how modes of reading inform the craft of writing. Texts will range from the established classics to the often neglected, so the course will benefit students with all levels of familiarity with the period. Authors may include Aristotle, Cicero, Seneca, St. Augustine, Petrarch, Erasmus, Machiavelli, Udall, Sidney, Shakespeare, Whitney, Lanyer, and Milton.
