ENGL 445 - Life Writing: The Renaissance

An exploration of the relationship between life writing, as practiced by modern biographers of Renaissance subjects, together with the autobiography and “self-fashioning” practiced by early modern subjects. Emphasis is given to understanding of the literature and the cultural history of the early modern period as a narrative told by both early subjects and their later commentators. The scope of subjects extends across a variety of countries representing “characters” that include the Merchant, the Prince, the Artisan, and the Common Person. (Pre-1800 course.)
