Feeling Spenser

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


In a recent English major capstone course called "Allegory and Affect in Edmund Spenser's _Faerie Queene_ (1590), I wanted to make the case that Spenser was speaking to complex experiences we still share, so my course focused on the intersection of allegory and affect theory: If GordonTeskey is right that allegory succeeds because of its affective engagement with audiences, the pleasures and uncertainties driving us playfully forward, what better way to engage with Spenser than to make feeling central to our classroom discussions?
