Description - Renaissance Literature and its Formal Engagements by M. Rasmussen

What might a self-conscious turn to formal analysis look like in Renaissance literary studies today, after theory and the new historicism? The essays collected here address this question from a variety of critical perspectives, as part of a renewed willingness within literary and cultural studies to engage questions of form. The volume includes essays by Paul Alpers, Douglas Bruster, Stephen Cohen, Heather Dubrow, William Flesch, Joseph Loewenstein, Elizabeth Harris Sagaser and Mark Womack, together with an introduction by Mark David Rasmussen and an afterword by Richard Strier.
