A Look Inside
Unpaid Annotation
This collection presents early modern writers who were either virtually unknown, or whose works were overshadowed by those of their great contemporaries Shakespeare, Jonson, Spenser, and Donne. It is a series of historically specific readings of social relationships, understood from the point of view of marginalized or neglected sources. The intention of this volume is to amplify the canon with complementary materials whose differences of voice and view may moderate and open up new discourses on the early modern period.
