Subject: Self-Identification in Shakespeare and Sidney
Does anyone have any ideas about where to find information on the
self-identification conventions used by Shakespeare and Sidney? This is
for a paper in one of my seminar classes.
I'm familiar with the Phil/Astrophil and will/William uses. I'm looking
for anything relating to an analysis of the purpose of
self-identification (a psychological reading most likely) and something
giving examples of the sonnets where these can be found would be helpful
too. I want to show as many examples as possible and my own readings
may unintentionally omit some.
You may reply either on or off list.
