You're seeing this page because your web browser tried to connect to Warwick's website with insecure settings. Please upgrade your web browser.

The TLS 1.0 encryption protocol is disabled across the University's web services. Disabling TLS 1.0 prevents it from being used to access Warwick websites via an insecure web browser or application. We've made this change to keep the University's websites safe and secure.

What do I need to do?

When accessing websites using a web browser, ensure you use the latest available version of the browser – whether that is Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari or another browser. Using the latest version keeps you safe online because you're using the most up-to-date security settings.

Why is this happening?

Although TLS 1.0, when configured properly, has no known security vulnerabilities, newer protocols are designed better to address the potential for new vulnerabilities.

The PCI Data Security Standard 3.1 recommends disabling “early TLS”:

“SSL and early TLS are not considered strong cryptography and cannot be used as a security control after June 30, 2016 [without a mitigation strategy for disabling it before June 2018].


The best response is to disable SSL entirely and migrate to a more modern encryption protocol, which at the time of publication is a minimum of TLS v1.1, although entities are strongly encouraged to consider TLS v1.2.”

We need to be PCI-compliant to take online payments at the University. It is not sufficient to merely disable TLS 1.0 on our transaction tracking system as the requirement extends to any system that initiates a payment, including car parking, printer credits, the Warwick website, etc.

Presentation on theme: "John Dryden 1631-1700."— Presentation transcript:

1 John Dryden

2 Poet and CriticHe wrote plays until the plague closed the play houses.1668 Wrote “An Essay on Dramatic Poesy”argued to be his best workwritten as a discussion between 4 men.

3 DrydenHe aimed at expressing his thoughts in the most precise and concentrated way possible. Although he uses formal poetic structures such as heroic stanzas and heroic couplets, he tried to achieve the rhythms of speech.He appreciates Verisimilitude

4 Faults His reasoning is flawed by this need to flatter
He relied on both authority and common sense and when they did not coincide, he had a hard time deciding which to believe.

5 Dryden Invited to be part of the Royal Society in 1662.
He did not pay his dues and was not active and thus kicked out in 1666.The Royal Society of London for the Improvement of Natural Knowledge, known simply as The Royal Society, is a learned society for science that was founded in 1660

6 Dramatic PoesyThe classical unities are rules for drama derived from Aristotle. In their neoclassical form they are as follows:The unity of action: a play should have one main action that it follows, with no or few subplots.The unity of place: a play should cover a single physical space and should not attempt to compress geography, nor should the stage represent more than one place.The unity of time: the action in a play should take place over no more than 24 hours.

7 PoesyThe main point of Dryden's essay seems to be a valuation of becoming (the striving, nature-imitating, large scope of tragicomedy and Shakespeare) over being (the static perfection of the ideal-imitating Classical/French/Jonsonian drama).

8 PoesyFive issues: 1)Ancients vs. Moderns 2) Unities 3) French vs. English Drama 4) Separation of Tragedy and Comedy vs. Tragicomedy 5) Appropriateness of Rhyme in Drama
