Readings in Genre: Memory in Early Modern Lit

ENGLISH 182S.01

This course will explore the relationship memory and narrative.  What are the stakes of forgetfulness and remembrance in late medieval and early modern literature? We will trace how plays, allegories, collections of poems, and confessional narratives reflect on the importance of memory in helping us create a sense of self-by remembering our past actions, we create our present identity.
