Summary
Scholars and students interested in the use of current critical theories will find this collection of original essays indispensable. A companion volume to "The Return of Theory in Early Modern English Studies: Tarrying with the Subjunctive", the essays in this volume are organized into four categories: posthumanism, ecocriticism, historical phenomenology, and historicism now. Original essays by leading early modern scholars not only provide valuable insights into leading theoretical interventions, but provide close readings of key early modern texts, including Shakespearean drama, the work of Philip Sidney, George Herbert and John Donne, John Milton's "Paradise Lost" and "Paradise Regained", Margaret Cavendish's "The Blazing-World", and the early modern reception of Empedocles in the work of Marlowe's "Tamburlaine" and others.
