Memento mori: Sir Thomas Wyatt and the Problem of Periodization

 

Tuesday, February 12, 5:30 pm
Marsh Room, Billings Library
University of Vermont

On February 12 at 5:30 pm, Professor Carl Martin of Norwich University will give a public lecture on "Memento mori : Sir Thomas Wyatt (1503-1542) and the Problem of Periodization." Born at the turn of the 16th century; ambassador for the autocratic Henry VIII; friend of prominent Protestants; the first sonneteer in England: Sir Thomas Wyatt (1503–42) seems the very embodiment of the European Renaissance—by which is often meant, "not medieval."  In his lecture, 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.

The talk is part of the 2018-2019 College of Arts and Sciences Medieval Studies Lecture series and is supported by the Departments of English and History and by Silver Special Collections. It is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Silver Special Collections at uvmsc@uvm.edu or (802) 656-2138.
