Dr. Victor Lenthe


Dr. Lenthe’s research focuses on early modern English literature and its relationship to the history of political thought. His current book project, Against Consensus: The Poetics of Collective Agreement, England c. 1600, contributes a literary and philological history of the idea of political consensus by examining writers who interrogated the meaning and value of collective agreement in the culturally divided society of Reformation England. His articles on this and other topics are in print or forthcoming from journals including Studies in English Literature, 1500-1900, Studies in PhilologyEnglish Literary HistoryShakespeare, and Notes & Queries. He has been at Bilkent since 2017 and frequently teaches courses that include writers such as William Shakespeare, Michel de Montaigne, and John Locke. (Last updated 2019.)
