Description

Uniting eighteen leading critics in early modern literary studies, this volume explores book history and the material text. The essays incorporate a broad range of subjects, such as gender and sexuality, religion, postcolonial theory, political and economic history, adaptation and appropriation, historical formalism, and digital humanities. With essays on Shakespeare, Spenser, Milton, and others, this volume makes early modern literary studies and book history accessible and will be a core resource in the field for years to come.
