This is book number 22 in the Renaissance Papers series.

This year's volume offers many contributions on early modern drama alongside essays probing identity, iconography, and devotional imagery in religious spaces and artworks.

Renaissance Papers collects the best scholarly essays submitted each year to the Southeastern Renaissance Conference. The 2017 volume opens with a trio of essays probing identity, iconography, and devotional imagery in connection with the sacred spaces of St. Paul's Cathedral and of the Bichi Chapel frescoes in the Church of St. Agostino in Siena, as well as with Francisco de Zurbur n's Crucifixion with a Painter. The majority of the volume'sessays concern early modern drama: botany and the body in Titus Andronicus; Ovidian sleep in Romeo and Juliet, The Winter's Tale, and Othello; chivalry in Richard II and 1 Henry IV; transhumanist discourse in Othello; obedience and devils in Dr. Faustus, and domesticity and commerce in A Chaste Maid in Cheapside. The focus then shifts to the non-dramatic with reconsiderations of the intertextualities in Shakespeare's The Rape of Lucrece and the paratextualities in Salve Deus Rex Judaeorum. The final essay, on the Faerie Queene, explores the intended and unintended literary consequences of pairing humor with death.
