The 37 essays in The Oxford Handbook of Thomas Middleton reinterpret the English Renaissance through the lens of one of its most original, and least understood, geniuses. Shakespeare's younger contemporary and collaborator, Middleton wrote modern comedies, tragedies, tragicomedies, history plays, masques, pageants, pamphlets, and poetry. The largest collection of new Middleton criticism ever assembled, this ambitious Handbook provides a comprehensive, in-depth, cutting-edge reaction to OUP's Collected Works of Thomas Middleton, winner of the 2009 MLA prize for editing, the first complete scholarly text of his voluminous and diverse oeuvre. The Handbook brings together an international, cross-generational team of experts to discuss all these genres through an equally diverse range of critical approaches, from feminism to stylistics, ecocriticism to performance studies, Aristotle to Zizek. Reinterpretations of canonical plays such as The Changeling, Women Beware Women, The Roaring Girl, and A Chaste Maid in Cheapside mingle with explorations of neglected or recently-identified works. Middleton's dramatic use of dance, music, and clothing, Middletonian adaptation, his relationships to the classical world and to continental Europe, his fascinating explorations of sexuality and religion, all receive attention. The collection also provides new essays on modern and postmodern reactions to Middleton, including recent Middleton revivals and films, and living artists' responses to his work-responses that range from the actresses who play Middleton's women to writers in various genres who have been inspired by his artistry. The Handbook establishes an authoritative foundation for the rapidly-expanding growth of interest in this extraordinarily protean, funny, moving, disturbing, and modern writer.

Trish Thomas Henley is an Assistant Professor of English and Comparative Literature at the University of Cincinnati.

Review:


"Magnificent...An exuberant performance from start to finish." --Open Letters Monthly


"There is much to be learnt in this book about what factors, such as the different playhouses that staged performances by different playwrights, influenced the development of certain plays...Highly recommended for anyone interested in a wide range of studies from film, music and theatre, gender studies, psychology and much more." --Sun News Post


"[A] useful, edifying, well-informed volume...This original and substantial collection of scholarship and criticism on Middleton, the first of its kind, will surely appeal to scholars, teachers, and students with interests in Middleton, Renaissance literature and culture, and applications of critical theory to early modem texts...Recommended." --Choice
