"A wonderful, bracing guide to Early Modern literature and culture.I admire Hattaway's deftness and skill at marking out theboundaries and illuminating what would otherwise lurk in thedarkness."
"A cliché-free zone, a most refreshing read for students aswell as teachers."
Arthur F. Kinney, University of Massachusetts,Amherst
"Renaissance and Reformations is an extraordinary achievement:Michael Hattaway's compact study of Early Modern literature beliesan astonishing command of the conditions of thought and writingthat produced it and does so with an unusual citation of all formsand genres, major and minor and newly-discovered texts. As aresult, he is able to take us into the imaginative processes of thetime to show us the sheer pleasures these works held as no otherstudy has done."
A. R. Braunmuller, University of California, LosAngeles
"Sharp insights and fresh examples fill Michael Hattaway'swelcome book. He enlightens new readers and those who thought theyknew 'that foreign country, early modern England' - its high, low,middling culture, its performances and rulers and ruled. All becomeunderstandable and beguilingly strange in Hattaway's volume. Headmirably 'asks "how" questions not "what" questions' and invitesreaders to think through ideas, texts, techniques, images,historical moments so they all become the reader's own."
Roger Pooley, Keele University
"Put this on your reading-lists."
