Reconceiving the Renaissance

A Critical Reader

Ewan Fernie, Ramona Wray, Mark Thornton Burnett, and Clare McManus

  • Reconceiving the Renaissance will be the only comprehensive anthology of contemporary Renaissance criticism.
  • It makes available carefully selected extracts from classic and cutting-edge criticism which students really ought to know.
  • Sections on 'Textuality', 'Histories', 'Appropriation', 'Identities', 'Materiality' and 'Values' map out the discipline in detail.
  • Each section is individually introduced by the editors and features some of the most exciting criticism of recent years, combining indispensable longer extracts with provocative shorter extracts in an absorbing 'narrative'.
  • It also has the most organised pedagogical structure and most useful pedagogical features of any available book in the area.
  • The General Introduction offers a clear overview of recent developments in the field.
