Readership: The book is suitable for use as a main text to accompany an anthology of primary texts on survey courses on Renaissance Literature. It can also be recommeded as further reading on any number of more specific or more focused Renaissance literature modules, such as Shakespeare, Early Modern Women Writers etc.
The book should find a good market on US taught graduate courses in Renaissance literature and on MA courses in the UK, where students are required to engage more critically with a text.
