Wine and Oil (and Cream Tea at Dean Prior): Draft Programme for the Herrick Conference in July

“Lords of Wine and Oil”: Community and Conviviality in the work of Robert Herrick and his contemporaries.

This conference comes halfway through the process of editing The Complete Poetry of Robert Herrick (Oxford UP, 2010) and will be held from July 18th – 20th 2008 at Buckfast Abbey, near Herrick’s vicarage of Dean Prior, in Devon. One session will also be held in Herrick’s church at Dean Prior. The conference will focus on the part played by Community, Conviviality and Friendship not only in Herrick’s work, but in all forms of literary discourse of the early Stuart period (c.1600-c.1650).

This conference is organised by the School of English, Newcastle University and is supported by the British Academy, the AHRC, the AMARC, the Society for Renaissance Studies, St. John’s College, Cambridge and the Department of English at the University of Exeter.
