Representing the professions : administration, law, and theater in early modern England by Edward Gieskes( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Representing the Professions unites literary criticism, social and legal history, and Pierre Bourdieu's sociology of culture. It offers a detailed exploration of the professionalization of selected early modern disciplines in an effort to characterize those disciplines in their social, economic, and historical contexts."--Jacket
Writing Robert Greene : essays on England's first notorious professional writer by Kirk Melnikoff( Book )

13 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robert Greene, contemporary of Shakespeare and Marlowe and member of the group of six known as the "University Wits," is the subject of this essay collection, the first to be dedicated solely to his work. Although in his short lifetime Greene published some three dozen prose works, composed at least five plays, and was one of the period's most recognized - even notorious - literary figures, his place within the canon of Renaissance writers has been marginal at best. Writing Robert Greene offers a reappraisal of Greene's career and of his contribution to Elizabethan culture." "Rather than drawing lines between Greene's work for the pamphlet market and for the professional theatres, the essays in the volume imagine his writing on a continuum. Some essays trace the ways in which Greene's poetry and prose navigate differing economies. Others consider how the full spectrum of his writing contributes to an emergent professional discourse about popular print and theatrical culture." "The volume includes an annotated bibliography of recent scholarship on Greene and three valuable appendices (presenting apocrypha; edition information; and editions organized by year of publication)."--Jacket
Renaissance papers 2011 by Andrew Eric Shifflett( Book )

7 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Renaissance Papers' collects the best scholarly essays submitted each year to the Southeastern Renaissance Conference. The 2011 volume opens with three essays focused on Shakespeare: one on Pauline presences in '1 Henry 4', one on the play of letters in 'Love's Labour's Lost', and another on 'productive violence' in 'Titus Andronicus'. The volume then turns to links between Renaissance drama and the wider culture, with essays on Ramistic method in Marlowe's 'Massacre at Paris', 'overflowing' emotion in generically experimental plays of the first decade of the seventeenth century, and the 'birdliming' of characters in 'Bartholomew Fair' and 'Othello'. Next come essays devoted to a trio of lyric poets: Sir Philip Sidney, whose frustrated desire leads to the 'sacrificial sublime'; Fulke Greville, whose quest for certainty is complicated by his radical Calvinism; and George Herbert, whose spiritual transformations are inspired by the machinery of court masques. The volume closes with essays showcasing a range of interests in the history of ideas: Trinitarianism in Edmund Spenser's 'Faerie Queene', social satire and the norms of Christian exemplarity, and the humane censorship of Cardinal Bellarmine. Contributors: William A. Coulter, L. Grant Hamby, Bryan Herek, C. Bryan Love, Julia P. McLeod, Kara Northway, James Pearce, Paul J. Stapleton, Jessica Tooker, Lewis Walker, Kathryn Walls, Emma Annette Wilson. Andrew Shifflett and Edward Gieskes are Associate Professors of English at the University of South Carolina, Columbia
Renaissance papers 2012 by Andrew Eric Shifflett( Book )

7 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Renaissance Papers collects the best scholarly essays submitted each year to the Southeastern Renaissance Conference. The 2012 volume opens with two essays on sexuality in Elizabethan narrative poetry: on homoeroticism in Spenser's Faerie Queene and on Shakespeare's "swerve" into Lucretian imagery in Venus and Adonis. The volume then turns to Renaissance drama and its links to the wider culture: the commodification of spirit in Marlowe's Doctor Faustus, Shakespeare's evocation of the Acts of the Apostles in The Comedy of Errors, "summoning" in Hamlet and King Lear, discourses of procreation and generation in Antony and Cleopatra/, trade and gender in John Webster's Devil's Law-Case, and an examination of street scenes in Romeo and Juliet in relation to Paul's Cross Churchyard, the hub of the London bookselling market in the early modern period. The volume closes with essays on seventeenth-century literature and literary culture: on the "puritan logic" of the elder Andrew Marvell in his famous son's poem "To His Coy Mistress," on the "sociable lexicography" of a Royalist polymath attempting to reconcile with the English Commonwealth, and on the underestimated roles of Urania in Milton's Paradise Lost. Contributors: David Ainsworth, Thomas W. Dabbs, Sonya Freeman Loftis, Russell Hugh McConnell, Robert L. Reid, Amrita Sen, Susan C. Staub, Emily Stockard, Nathan Stogdill, Christina A. Taormina, Emma Annette Wilson. Andrew Shifflett and Edward Gieskes are Associate Professors of English at the University of South Carolina, Columbia
