"The various contributors have done a fine job in filling out the contentions with some of the most important writing on the late Elizabethan period to have appeared in decades." Glenn Burgess, Albion "The scholarship is impeccable throughout this volume, and the writers are acknowledged exprts in their respective fields." Ben Lowe, The Historian "John Guy's impressive gathering of essays addresses the Tudor dynasty's twilight moment...as virtually a "second reign" for the aging queen. Richard McCoy's superb treatment of the politics of the poetical anthology, combined with Alistair Fox's assessment of patronage's decline, clears a way for fresh understanding of thiss urgent aspect of early literary production and transmission."
