Visual Acuity and the Arts of Communication in Early Modern Germany

The sixth international conference sponsored by FNI will address visual culture in early modern Germany. Artists, writers, preachers, musicians, and performers, as well as those whom they may represent, need audiences. In a society saturated with images, visualization, whether literal or imaginative, becomes a dynamic tool for communication. In early print culture writers, artists, and publishers experimented with how to combine visual images with text in order to make their messages more effective. Authors, such as Hans Sachs, often engaged their audiences through verbal pictures, such as vivid descriptions of settings and people. During the Early Modern period religious propagandists, political writers, satirists, cartographers, the scientific community, and others experimented with new uses of visual images. Practitioners of many disciplines adopted visual criteria for testing truth claims, investigating pressing problems, and representing knowledge.

Anne Southwell's poetry

Poetry by Anne Southwell, a strongly Calvinist writer, appears in two extant manuscripts. It is possible that they were both assembled under the supervision of Southwell herself and/or her second husband Henry Sibthorpe.

As well as secular and religious poetry by Southwell, the Folger manuscript contains a wide range of miscellaneous material: verse from songbooks and poems by Henry King, Arthur Gorges and Walter Ralegh (none attributed correctly), prose texts by Southwell and others and memoranda of various kinds, including 'A List of my Bookes' (Cavanaugh 1967).
