Memento mori: Sir Thomas Wyatt and the Problem of Periodization

Feb 12, 2019
5:30 pm to 7:15 pm
Marsh Room, Billings Library

Memento mori: Sir Thomas Wyatt and the Problem of Periodization. Professor Carl Martin of Norwich University will give a public lecture about Sir Thomas Wyatt (1503-42). Dr. Martin will explore Wyatt as a figure of cultural continuity rather than rupture. He seeks to reveal a connection between poetry and portraiture in the early Tudor period as complementary tools to represent, and ward off, fears of death in a threatening world.
