From the Publisher"A compelling, highly readable historicist survey that sets out to restore a productive sense of strangeness to sixteenth and seventeenth-century texts"
Times Literary Supplement
"Of immense value for all students of early-modern literature...a genuinely helpful and informative guide."
Notes and Queries
"One of the pleasures of this book, throughout, is Scott-Warren's thoughtful alignment of historical research and commentary with precise and often enormously insightful close readings of literary works."
"A stimulating guide to this period of literature for both students and more advanced readers."
Ben Jonson Journal
"The strength of Jason Scott-Warren's sensitive and subtle Early Modern English Literature is that he can be blunt and dogmatic. Most of all, he basically sees the past for what it was, another country, blissfully unaware of us and ours, alien and self-enclosed."
Bibliothèque d'Humanisme et Renaissance
"If you read one critical work this year, make it: Jason Scott-Warren, Early Modern English Literature."
University of Warwick teaching blog
"Surveys and samplings of periods have a tendency to sacrifice subtlety for sweep, and clarity for coverage. When the period in question is arguably the richest in literary history then theres a real risk of summary and synthesis becoming superficial. Fortunately, Jason Scott-Warren's superb overview is as precise as it is panoramic. Clinically executed close readings of texts coupled with painstakingly elaborated cultural contexts make this a must-read volume for students and scholars alike."
