Description - Reading Shakespeare's Poems in Early Modern England by S. Roberts

This is a comprehensive study of early modern texts, readings, and readers of Shakespeare's poems in print and manuscript, which makes a useful contribution both to Shakespeare studies and the history of the book. Examining gendered readerships and the use of erotic works, reading practises and manuscript culture, textual forms and transmission, literary taste and the canonisation of Shakespeare, this book argues that historicist criticism can no longer ignore histories of reading.
