9780199547555: The Oxford History of Classical Reception in English Literature: Volume 2: 1558-1660

The Oxford History of Classical Reception (OHCREL) is designed to offer a comprehensive investigation of the numerous and diverse ways in which literary texts of the classical world have stimulated responses and refashioning by English writers. Covering the full range of English literature from the early Middle Ages to the present day, OHCREL both synthesizes existing scholarship and presents cutting-edge new research, employing an international team of expert contributors for each of the five volumes.

OHCREL endeavours to interrogate, rather than inertly reiterate, conventional assumptions about literary 'periods', the processes of canon-formation, and the relations between literary and non-literary discourse. It conceives of 'reception' as a complex process of dialogic exchange and, rather than offering large cultural generalizations, it engages in close critical analysis of literary texts. It explores in detail the ways in which English writers' engagement with classical literature casts as much light on the classical originals as it does on the English writers' own cultural context.

This second volume, and third to appear in the series, covers the years 1558-1660, and explores the reception of the ancient genres and authors in English Renaissance literature, engaging with the major, and many of the minor, writers of the period, including Shakespeare, Marlowe, Spenser, and Jonson. Separate chapters examine the Renaissance institutions and contexts which shape the reception of antiquity, and an annotated bibliography provides substantial material for further reading.

Review:


"In sum, the endeavor amounts to a detailed, up-to-date, and authoritative compendium of learning and insight on a topic that defines the very soul of Renaissance literature." --William J. Kennedy, Modern Philology


"...these chapters are substantial and enlightening; no one remotely interested in the reception of classical literature and ideas in the English Renaissance should be without access to this book...The editors do seem to me correct in broadly reiterating the role of classical authority in a period when the classical languages and texts...Among other good reads in this section, Hardie (Ch. 10) surveys epic reception admirably, as one might expect, without too much treading on the toes of the epic-author essays later. William Fitzgerald, after dutifully surveying classical and early modern epistolary territory, turns attention engagingly to uses of the Ciceronian trope...What cannot be argued, I think, is the considerable extent to which these classically receptive readings crack open Renaissance English literature to enlightening view." --Dan Hooley, Bryn Mawr Classical Review
