The age of Shakespeare comes to life in this fascinating collection of documents from Renaissance England.

Supported by a wide range of pedagogically designed tools to help students find their way into this fascinating era, The Renaissance: A Sourcebook includes:

· an authoritative introduction outlining historical events, religious revolution, social mobility, technological advances, global exchange, and the literary and cultural ideas that defined 'the Renaissance'
· informative headnotes, footnotes, and section introductions providing important contexts for each individual document
· a timeline and a chronological list of the major literary events of the period
· a guide to further reading in both early modern sources and contemporary scholarship, as well as suggestions for useful websites

The Renaissance: A Sourcebook makes available documents that are both important in their own right and crucial for an understanding of the literary output of the period. The rich source material and essential context that the book provides make it an invaluable resource for all students of Shakespeare, the English Renaissance, and Early Modern Literature.
