Russ McDonald, The Times Literary Supplement
"... Alexander's edition of William Scott's Model of Poesy is exemplary ... for anyone working in any way with the literature, and the literary scene, of the sixteenth century's last two or three decades, Scott's Model is indispensable, and it is our immense good fortune that its first modern edition has been prepared by someone with the technical expertise ... the capacity for thorough research ... and the stylistic elegance of Gavin Alexander."
Roger Kuin, The Spenser Review
"Scott's manuscript provides critics with fresh access to a comprehensive and well-arranged early modern exegesis on poetic theory and practice ... Scott's treatise, and Alexander's edition, offers perhaps the most exciting literary discovery of recent years."
Hannah Leah Crummé, Renaissance Quarterly
"Gavin Alexander's splendid scholarly edition of William Scott's Model of Poesy (1599) contributes to early modern literary studies in ways that will have lasting effects ... In ambition and comprehensiveness, Alexander's contribution as an editor matches that of Scott as a critic ... So learned in the rhetorical and critical traditions known to the Elizabethans is Alexander's introduction that it stands as a major work of scholarship in its own right."
