| Book Description: |
Revisiting Elizabethan literary culture through the lenses of popularity, this collection allows us to view the subject from an angle unfamiliar to modern eyes, but fundamental for early modern readers. Throughout, the aim is to unpack assumptions about the popular, revealing a literary England in which almanacs and proclamations outweigh sonnets and plays, and authors familiar to us are displaced by names now often forgotten.
