Ben Jonson Journal
"The strength of Jason Scott-Warren's sensitive and subtleEarly Modern English Literature is that he can be blunt anddogmatic. Most of all, he basically sees the past for what it was,another country, blissfully unaware of us and ours, alien andself-enclosed."
Bibliothèque d'Humanisme et Renaissance
"If you read one critical work this year, make it: JasonScott-Warren, Early Modern English Literature."
University of Warwick teaching blog
"Surveys and samplings of periods have a tendency to sacrificesubtlety for sweep, and clarity for coverage. When the period inquestion is arguably the richest in literary history then theres areal risk of summary and synthesis becoming superficial.Fortunately, Jason Scott-Warren's superb overview is as precise asit is panoramic. Clinically executed close readings of textscoupled with painstakingly elaborated cultural contexts make this amust-read volume for students and scholars alike."
