Professor Sawday will explore the curious history of gaps, absences, and lacunae in early modern writing and culture. Waste and scattered leaves of paper, blank sheets and empty space is not how we normally approach a culture so committed, rhetorically, to plenitude and copiousness but This lecture will examine the trope of emptiness – ‘the poetics of the blank’.
