Prof. Susan Wiseman,  “Writing Landscape in Seventeenth Century Derbyshire: Text, Place and Status”

Abstract:

Taking as its starting place the views from Oker Hill, in Derbyshire and Leonard Wheatcroft’s poem about it, the paper uses text-landscape combinations in provincial literate culture to explore the relationships between elite and non-elite writing in seventeenth-century England. It takes writing by Thomas Hobbes, Leonard Wheatcroft, Margaret Cavendish, Richard Andrews, Ben Jonson and others to ask both whether there is material that allows us to reconsider the way we understand the production and consumption of topographical and landscape writing in seventeenth century England, and to build on that to ask about possibilities for a fuller integration of the texts of non-elite literacy into ur consideration of literature, Renaissance and writing.
