"Training the Reader in Early-Modern Europe"

Panel Proposal for: MLA 2004, Philadelphia PA

Early-Modern European authors often sought to influence a particular
reader response to their work through a variety of reader-training
strategies-- including  the use of prefaces, narrative digressions,
and generic hybridization.  We seek papers that investigate the
mechanics and potential cultural implications of this publication
