Reviews

"With admirable breadth and wit, The English Renaissance in Popular Culture illuminates how far modern mass culture's fascination with its counterpart, the culture of early modern England, extends beyond Shakespeare. The range of materials explored - from silent film to punk music, The Tudors TV series to Renaissance fairs, historical fiction to horror films - is especially praiseworthy, as is the critical intelligence and ingenuity with which the contributors analyze how our own culture has been shaped by imaginative and often surprising identifications with the English Renaissance. The intersection of Renaissance scholarship and contemporary cultural studies in this well-conceived collection makes for a thought-provoking, exciting, timely and original contribution to study of the English past in the popular present." - Douglas M. Lanier, Professor of English, University of New Hampshire
