What roles did animals play in the construction of early modern identities? In this volume, international scholars working in the disciplines of history, art history and literature provide suggestive and probing answers. Their essays investigate how animals - horses, dogs, pigs, fish, cattle, sheep, birds, rhinoceroses, even sea-monsters and other creatures - served people in Europe, England, the Americas and Africa to defend, contest or transcend the boundaries of early modern identities.

'Grossly Material Things' offers a new history of the making and reception of books during the English literary Renaissance. It explores the roles women played as co-authors, editors, translators, patrons, printers, booksellers, and readers of a huge range of texts, proving that women were central to the processes of making and manufacture that brought us some of our most famous literature. Drawing together a broad range of sources, from letters anddiaries to plays and poetry, Smith's book is highly interdisciplinary, and promises to be of interest not only to literary scholars but to historians of the early modern period and of the book, textual scholars andbibliographers.

Considering major works by Kyd, Shakespeare, Middleton and Webster among others, this book transforms current understanding of early modern revenge tragedy. Revising the genre in light of historical revisions to England's Reformations, and with appropriate regard to the social history of the dead, it shows revenge tragedy is not a Reformist and anti-Catholic genre, but one rooted in traditional Catholic culture, thereby transforming understandings of the theatre of the age

This edition seeks to evaluate Antonio's Revenge not merely as a literary text but as a drama for a particular company, in a specific theatre. The scholarly introduction explores the high degree of originality in Marston's dramatic techniques and establishes him as a leading innovator in both the language and the dramaturgy of his day. Ostensibly the second part of Antonio and Mellida, a satiric romance published in 1599, Antonio's Revenge differs in both theme and linguistic style. Reavley Gair offers an insightful analysis of the play's relationship with Shakespeare's Hamlet --written at about the same time--and a new interpretation of the relations between dramatic companies at the Globe and the Paul's Theatre.

Challenging the assumption that medieval Catholicism was overly sensual, whilst Protestantism rejected any element of worship appealing to the eye, ear, or nose, this study asks fundamental questions about the relationship between religion and the senses. The book begins with an examination of pre-Reformation beliefs and practices, establishing intellectual views on the senses in fifteenth-century England. Having established the parameters for the role of sense before the Reformation, the second half of the book mirrors these concerns in the post-1520 world, looking at how, and to what degree, the relationship between religious practices and sensation changed as a result of the coming of Protestantism.
