Politics of Mirth by Leah S. Marcus
Book Description"Leah Marcus's "The Politics of Mirth: Jonson, Herrick, Milton, Marvell, and the Defense of Old Holiday Pastimes" is a fascinating study of why James and Charles promoted some types of rural sport and festival and of how certain literary texts participated in promoting or critiquing royal policy. . . . Marcus provocatively links texts not often studied in conjunction with one another, and she provides strong and detailed readings of those texts." Jean E. Howard"

Books By Author Leah S. Marcus
As You Like it, Paperback (November 2011)
"All the world's a stage." Shakespeare's beloved pastoral comedy is now available in a Norton Critical Edition.
Merchant of Venice, Paperback (February 2006)
The Merchant of Venice is one of Shakespeare's most beautiful plays and, conversely, his ugliest. Juxtaposed within the same conceptual frame are heavenly and musical harmonies, romantic love, materialism, and racism.
Elizabeth I, Hardback (February 2003)
Through the transcriptions of texts in her own hand, readers can track the Queen's language and compositional style. The texts in foreign languages, meanwhile, will allow readers to prepare their own English translations from these original sources.
Unediting the Renaissance, Paperback (November 1996)» View all books by Leah S. Marcus
This work shows how much the texts of early modern authors have altered and rigidified over time. It also demonstrates how modern interpretations and performances of such works can be injected with new energy by a recognition of the possibilities closed off by modern standard editions.
