Burton's learned and satirical The Anatomy of Melancholy (first published in 1621) is one of the last great works of English prose to have remained unedited. This volume inaugurates an authoritative edition of the work, which is being prepared by a team of scholars from both sides of the Atlantic. It will be followed by two further volumes of text with textual apparatus, and two volumes of commentary.

Review:


"The editors of this newest edition have prepared a detailed and excellent description both of Burton's life and of the publication history of his magnum opus.....They have produced...an account so complex, of difficulties so staggering, that one wonders-literally, is in wonder at-how, after "only" twelve years of work, they were able to accomplish so much so well....This truly is both a remarkable work and an extraordinary project. The editors have given Burton's many editions the scrutiny they deserve and have presented the results of their ambitious research, and their editorial policies, with clarity and precision."--Sixteenth Century Journal


"This will undoubtedly be the standard edition, and all serious university libraries will need it."--Choice


"Doubtlessly, the Clarendon edition of Robert Burton's The Anatomy of Melancholy will be the standard text of the work for a long time and greatly benefit critics and students. The bibliographical work shows great care and thought, and the textual apparatus is as comprehensive as a modern publisher is likely to produce."--TEXT


"...this fascinating, eccentric, and genially poetic work is very handsome..."--The New York Review
