In The Press

“This is a superb collection, and one of the best collections on Elizabeth (possibly on early modern history generally) produced over the past few years. … The combination of edited texts and investigative essays allows sustained and detailed examination of key issues–the process of letter-writing, about language and how it is used, and about the materiality of letters–which we need in order to understand early modern politics.” (Natalie Mears, English Historical Review, Vol. 131 (552), October, 2016)
