Synopsis
The thrust of these symposium papers engaged the development of perspective in early modern England, an evolution in thought and practice that crossed disciplinary lines to be felt in the art, literature, and history of England. Individual papers explore perspectives on representation (e.g., history in fiction and fiction in history); development of frames for historical and literary narratives and their impact on point of view; implications of co-ordinate developments in painting and narrative, such as simultaneous introduction of fixed-point perspective and third person narrative; and the relationship between fact and fiction as they were defined in early modern England. The essays seek to alter current perspectives on the origins of the early modern period, connecting insights into intellectual developments to their embodiment in the art, literature, and history of the period.
