Reading Catherine of Siena : Women's Devotion in Medieval England
Catherine of Siena was a remarkably popular saint in medieval England, although she has long been overshadowed by her more popular namesake, Catherine of Alexandria. In this talk I would like to look at one particular manuscript, Harley 2409, which contains two long passages concerning Catherine taken from two very different sources. I will show how a medieval scribe has effectively created a new text by clipping and combining disparate elements to make one cohesive narrative for his readers, di…

Jane Austen's Hatred
In 1939, psychologist Denys Harding explained to the Literary Society of Manchester that English “gentleman of an older generation” had completely misread Jane Austen. The novelist, he announced and subsequently argued in the pages of F.R. Leavis’s Scrutiny, was no delicate satirist. Instead, she was a “regulated hater,” who managed and finessed the subtle “eruption of fear and hatred into the relationships of everyday social life.” Harding’s essay changed the current of Austen studies, permane…

Living in the Crypt : Mourning, Melancholy, and the Afterlife of Romeo and Juliet
We are told right at the start of Romeo and Juliet that their love is "death mark'd" - that they will be dead by the end of the play. But the lovers imagine themselves in states of living death so persistently before that promised end that a kind of mourning is deeply embedded in their self-awareness, in their love for each other, and in the audience's love for them. Ultimately, the play asks its audiences to reflect on the theater itself as a sacred space in which tragic characters cycle eter…

But despite a growing audience since her death in 1978, Warner remains (in Sarah Waters' words) 'one of the most shamefully under-read great British authors of the past 100 years'.
