Curations for The Pulter Project

My curations for Hester Pulter’s poem “Universal Dissolution” are now available on the Pulter Project website. These short essays bring together secondary materials that offer useful context for Pulter’s poetry, from sea monsters and unicorns to early modern celestial cartography.

The Pulter Project is a wonderful initiative to bring wider recognition to a deserving seventeenth-century poet, and is well worth a close look.
