English Renaissance by Kate Aughterson
Book DescriptionThis comprehensive anthology collects in one volume primary texts and documents relevant to literature, culture and intellectual life in England from 1550 to 1660. Through both well-known and forgotten texts that were influential at the time, the volume introduces controversies, ideas, and views on all areas of cultural interest in early modern England. Sections include: * religion and theology * politics and economics * society * education and humanism * literary and cultural theories * science and magic * exploration and traffic. Each section provides historical breadth, showing change and continuity. The English Renaissance enables students to compare the ideology, content and rhetorical strategies of 'literary' and 'aesthetic' texts with 'historical' or 'political' events and texts.

Books By Author Kate Aughterson
Shakespeare: The Late Plays, Paperback (November 2013)
This essential study takes a fresh look at The Winter's Tale, The Tempest, Cymbeline and Pericles. Part I uses carefully selected short extracts for close textual analysis, while Part II examines the contexts and key criticism. The volume is an ideal introductory guide for those who are studying Shakespeare's late plays for the first time.
Aphra Behn, Paperback (May 2003)
Provides students with an approachable analysis of Behn's dramaturgical abilities, showing how she uses comic and dramatic conventions to radical ends. Aughterson shows how Behn forces her audience to engage with issues of gender and sexuality, whilst continuing to write witty and accessible plays.
Webster: the Tragedies, Paperback (February 2001)
This study demonstrates how Webster's dramas are not subordinate to, but rather, comparable with those of Shakespeare. This is done through analysing Webster's dramatic and poetic skills, focusing on his heroines and the tightly male dominated world in which they are seen to struggle.
