“Of Anagrammatology:
Decoding the Renaissance Text”
Dr. William Sherman

‌We are not used to the idea that anagrams might have anything serious to teach us: for most of us they are games we grow out of, and famous writers from Ben Jonson to Samuel Johnson, from John Dryden to T. S. Eliot, have dismissed their deployment in literature as trivial, empty, and even perverse -- a twisted art, as Dryden described it in his satirical poem MacFlecknoe, devoted to 'tortur[ing] one poor word ten thousand ways.' But Christopher Ricks has recently reminded us that Shakespeare's age was the veritable 'heyday of the anagram,' suggesting that the art of verbal recombination can be studied as 'a true assistance to art' in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. In my illustrated lecture, I want to go further and suggest that anagrams may deserve a central place in a larger history, one with broader textual, cultural and intellectual dimensions. Bringing together some of the key figures in the birth of linguistics, literary criticism, psychoanalysis, cryptography and experimental art, anagrams offer a surprisingly useful lens for the processes by which modernity found itself in the hidden message of early modernity.
