About the Author:

Alessandra Petrina, Ph.D. (1995) in English Literature, University of Venice, is senior lecturer of English Literature at the University of Padua. She has published on late-medieval and Renaissance literature, including the monograph The Kingis Quair of James I of Scotland (1997).

Review:

"In breaking down the the barriers between disciplines, scholarship has chosen a route that is arduous, but rewarding, as Cultural Politics demonstrates. In constructing an integrated approach to Humfrey's political and cultural aspirations, there could hardly be a better starting-point that Alessandra Petrina's volume.+" David Rundle, English Historical Review, 2005. "Rather than an overzealous, proud, and pompous prince, Humphrey begins to emerge as a more thoughtful and consistent politician and patron.. Petrina has, therefore, drawn from the complex web of Humprey's life and intrigues a sophisticated appreciation of his role in English cultural politics; it is an important and overdue assessment." Kenneth Bartlett, Renaissance Quarterly. ..".Petrina offers a fine overview of the English cultural scene in this work of scholarship. ... excellent bibliography." A.C. Reeves, Choice, 2004.
