Sarah Van der Laan (Comparative Literature, Indiana University): "Songs of Experience: The Value of Error in Tassoand Spenser"

Please join us for the second in a series of talks centered around our new two-year project, “Nodes, Networks, Names: Recovering, Understanding, Representing Them”.

Assistant Professor Sarah Van der Laan (Comparative Literature, Indiana University) will be discussing an article-length piece that examines Torquato Tasso's narrative error and defense of experience in the Gerusalemme liberata and Edmund Spenser's imitation of Tasso in Book 2 of The Faerie Queene.

Lunch will be served.
