Description

The essays in this volume provide fresh readings of medieval and Renaissance texts, looking at the ways in which texts and events are written over in their conversion to cultural capital.

The volume brings together recent work by eleven distinguished scholars of the European Middle Ages and renaissance, addressing problems of literary history and periodization as well as the history of ideas and modes, gender, politics, rhetoric, popular literature, and cultural encounter. There are essays on Petrarch, Chaucer, Spenser, Shakespeare, Middleton and Herbert, as well as on the political and cultural contexts which give shape and meaning to each text.

The volume is an important addition to literary criticism and scholarship in the field of medieval and Renaissance studies.
