Reviews

"Coherently organized and carefully edited, Tudor Translation achieves its double purpose of contextualizing translation and offering new insights on the literary activity of the period. It should be of interest to advanced students and scholars in the fields of translation studies, translation history, and the history of English literature." - Renaissance Quarterly

"Not only does Tudor Translation illustrate how the target culture rightfully possesses the source text, inscribing it with its own meanings and interests, but it also emphasizes England's dynamic cultural interaction with both continental Europe and classical antiquity throughout the sixteenth century.Thomas Paynell's favourite terms to describe his translations ('fruitful' and 'profitable' (p. 42)) can certainly be used to recommend Tudor Translation to readers interested in literature, history, and translation studies." - The Modern Language Review
