This Timeline captures the myriad ways in which Essex—and, inevitably, Elizabeth also since their stories are so entangled—have been represented in the more than four centuries since their deaths. This project, and the Timeline, are ongoing efforts of Hank Dobin, Professor of English at Washington and Lee University. During the summer of 2014, Christian von Hassell, class of 2016, served as a research assistant and partner; in summer 2015, Hannah Palmatary and Ben Gee, both class of 2018, were Summer Scholars contributing to the project.
