Jody Greene: “I ♥ George Herbert”

Jody Greene: “I ♥ George Herbert”

Professor Greene’s current research interests include the ethics of reading, material textual studies, and the history of the category of the literary, and her two primary archives are seventeenth-century literature and poststructuralist philosophy. This talk explores the heart as a figure for the porosity of being in the poetry of George Herbert, and the ways faith and writing render Herbert, in the words of Jean-Luc Nancy, “closed open.”

Jody Greene is Associate Professor of Literature at UCSC.
