2020 Research and Teaching Report: Richard Rambuss

In Fall 2019 I taught a graduate seminar in the English Department, "Lyric and Ecstasy", on three 17th-century poets: John Donne, Richard Crashaw, and John Milton. It drew ten graduate students. This past November I also delivered the annual Paul Gottschalk Memorial Lecture at Cornell. My lecture was titled: "Milton, Spenser, Shakespeare, and Carnival New Orleans Style."
