  • Close Readersby Alan Stewart

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 33.95

    Humanism, in both its rhetoric and practice, attempted to transform the relationships between men that constituted the fabric of early modern society. So argues Alan Stewart in this ground-breaking investigation into the impact of humanism in sixteenth-century England. Here the author shows that by valorizing textual skills over martial prowess, humanism... more...

  • Framing Authorityby Mary Thomas Crane

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 37.50

    Writers in sixteenth-century England often kept commonplace books in which to jot down notable fragments encountered during reading or conversation, but few critics have fully appreciated the formative influence this activity had on humanism.

Ganim uses the concept of theatricality to illuminate... more...
