Jeff Dolven

Jeff Dolven teaches Renaissance literature, poetry, and poetics, including recent courses on Edmund Spenser, sixteenth and seventeenth-century lyric, the romance tradition, and the problem of style.  His first book, Scenes of Instruction (University of Chicago Press), explores the relation between the didactic ambitions of Renaissance romance and the humanist culture of teaching.  Current projects include essays on Shakespeare and on the emergence of iambic pentameter, and a new, book-length study of literary style from Wyatt to Jonson.  His essays have been published or are forthcoming in such journals as English Literary Renaissance, Raritan, Modern Philology, and Modern Language Quarterly; he has also published poems in The Paris Review, The Yale Review, The TLS, and elsewhere.
