Luis Rodríguez Rincón
A student of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, I focus on the social and cultural implications of writing in English, French, Portuguese, and Spanish. I am especially concerned with the relation of lyric and epic, questions of radical alterity in Cervantes and Camões, visual culture, and oceanic connections in the period. My dissertation project defines the oceanic imaginary of the 16th and early 17th centuries, illuminating the role of aqueous metamorphoses and amphibious beings in European imperial poetics.
I am the blogs editor for the Digital Salon Arcade as well as Managing Editor for the Poetry Magazine Mantis.
