About this book

Censorship is one of the key controversies debated by Renaissance historians and literary critics. Commentators are divided on a number of questions. Was there once a concerted plan to censor all material hostile to the status quo? Or did authorities only intervene in periods of acute crisis? Did they actually read the material referred to them? This is the first collection that brings together the key figures in the field and includes essays by Richard Burt, Janet Clare, Cyndia Clegg, Richard Dutton, Richard McCabe and Annabel Patterson.

Reviews

'...authoritative within the field.' - R.S.White, English, Communication and Cultural Studies, The University of Western Australia, Parergon

'This collection of essays makes an important contribution to the history of censorship, justly described by its editor Andrew Hadfield as 'one of the most exciting and controversial subjects in literary history'...These essays, together with excellent work by scholars newer to the field, advance and refine the still-developing picture of Renaissance censorship.' - Times Literary Supplement
