Acerca de


The poetry of Spenser, Sidney, and their contemporaries viewed asrhetorical discourse. A Ciceronian Sunburn reconsiders the complexionof Tudor poetics by demonstrating the ways in which poets andpedagogues appropriated the rhetorical brilliance of Cicero to inform theirapproaches to learning. By recasting the poetic texts of EdmundSpenser and Sir Philip Sidney as works that participated insixteenth-century debates on learning, E. Armstrong challengesconventional views of Tudor poetics.

From the Inside Flap:

"A Ciceronian Sunburn makes a powerful original addition to the history of rhetoric and poetics, the understanding of Renaissance and contemporary humanism, and the understanding of the poetics, poetry, and political work of Edmund Spenser. Armstrong’s argument against Ramist readings, then and now, deserves a wide hearing, for the rhetorical Ciceronian poetics he articulates is a humane, thoughtful, and ethically and politically important contribution to reintegrating rhetoric and poetics in Renaissance studies and in contemporary criticism." —Don H. Bialostosky, University of Pittsburgh

"In A Ciceronian Sunburn, Armstrong shows how abiding and pervasive Cicero’s influence was in sixteenth century English humanism; and in doing so provides us with an original and enlightening rhetorical reading of Spenser’s more important works. His grasp of the rhetorical tradition is sure, his account of the tensions in the reception of Cicero brought about by Ramist reform lucid, and his command of Spenser and Spenserian scholarship impressive." —Tom Conley, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
