The Encyclopedia of English Renaissance Literature

The Encyclopedia of English Renaissance Literature presents broad coverage and in-depth critical analysis of multiple aspects of the English literary landscape from the early sixteenth to the mid-seventeenth centuries. Featuring over 400 clear and accessible entries on a wide range of writers and literary topics, this comprehensive three-volume collection covers canonical authors and their works – from John Skelton to John Milton – as well as a variety of previously under-considered areas, including women writers, writings in manuscript, broadside ballads, commonplace books, and other popular literary forms. Entries are written by leading international scholars and biographical material on authors is presented in the context of cutting-edge critical discussions of literary works, with suggested readings for further study. With its unprecedented breadth of coverage, The Encyclopedia of English Renaissance Literature is an indispensable resource for students and scholars alike.
