Additional Information / Informations supplémentaires
Nadine Weiss holds degrees from the University of Richmond (VA), Yale University, and most recently, the University of Cambridge, where she completed her doctoral work, ‘“A divine centurie”: the religious sonnet in early modern England’, in 2019. Her research sets out to reassess the prevalence and importance of sonnet-writing as a devotional mode in the period between 1560 and 1652. Her primary research interests lie in two main areas (and eras) of early modern literature: (1) sixteenth-and seventeenth-century British devotional lyric poetry; (2) British and continental sonnet traditions of the long eighteenth century. Other specific interests include the early modern English religious sonnet; the ‘long Restoration’ of sonnet writing (~1648-1755); the interface between imaginative literature of devotion and early modern epistemologies of faith and belief; female religious sonneteers (especially Anne Vaughan Lok and Elizabeth Melville); biblical intertextuality in Milton’s late-career poems; revisionary fragments of The Faerie Queene; German and English comparative literature.
