Research project

Religious Relationships in Devotional Poetry: Gender and Genre in Renaissance Chrisitanity

An analysis of the devotional poetry of female authors of the English Renaissance. Their work will be considered alongside analogous poems by male authors to clarify how gender influenced the relationships they describe with God and other people and, in turn, how the psychology of desire worked out in these texts affirmed and challenged assumptions about gender.
