Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Will Stockton has his finger on the pulse of early modern studies. Playing Dirty is timely and exploratory, drawing together a range of approaches which have often been set against each other with theoretical cogency and an unusually light touch." —Christopher Pye, Williams College

"Playing Dirty offers a highly readable, smart, and engaging intervention into the role of the history of sexuality in Renaissance studies, psychoanalysis, and in the burgeoning field of waste studies. Comedy and scatology have long been facile bedfellows, but Stockton’s analysis asserts a fresh view on the ‘trash’ of history. Playing Dirty translates well across many literary, cultural, and theoretical registers as it presents a unique view of what it means to be queer." —Erin Labbie, Bowling Green State University
