Forgetting in Early Modern English Literature and Culture: Lethe's Legacy
Christopher Ivic, Grant Williams
Taylor & Francis, Jun 1, 2002 - Literary Collections - 208 pages
This collection of essays historicizes and theorizes forgetting in English Renaissance literary texts and their cultural contexts. Its essays open up an area of study overlooked by contemporary Renaissance scholarship, which is too often swayed by a critical paradigm devoted to the "art of memory." This volume recovers the crucial role of forgetting in producing early modernity's subjective and collective identities, desires and fantasies.
