A note to fellow-Spenserians
by Theresa Krier

Retired but reluctant to lay down my pen, I’ve written another book, which may interest some SR readers. Since I don’t foresee publishing it, but want it to be accessible, the editors of Spenser Review have kindly offered me space here to describe it and point you to its online location.

Dawns Rising: Poetry and Irigarayan Thought on Phenomena takes up sensuous, mythopoeic dawns of dream-vision, philosophical poetry, ancient epic, and allegoresis, in the spirit of Angus Fletcher’s lifelong work on mutability and the diurnal. These forms and traditions make a point of thinking through the stakes of our relations to the temporal phenomenal world ­– whether we resist such phenomena or welcome them – matters ubiquitous in Spenser. Individual chapters discuss Homer’s rosy-fingered Dawn; Boethius’ Consolation and its uses of Phoebus; Chaucer’s reputation as poet of morning and spring; Dunbar’s and Douglas’s dream-vision dawns in northern weathers; incipience and nascency in dawn bowers and groves; the interval between dark and first light, in Chaucer and Spenser. Many modern poet-philosophers of temporal phenomena come in too, among them Wallace Stevens, Susanne Langer, Mei-Mei Berssenbrugge, and especially Luce Irigaray, for the amplitude of her work on living in a temporal, phenomenal world. She has many pages in these chapters.

If you care to look further, please visit Academia.edu, and search Theresa M. Krier. All the chapters are there, at the top of my page. Or you can find each chapter on the website theresakrier.com, under Dawns Rising.
