Dublin: Renaissance city of literature interrogates the notion of a literary 'renaissance' in Dublin. Through detailed case studies of print and literature in Renaissance Dublin, the volume covers innovative new ground, including quantitative analysis of print production in Ireland, unique insight into the city's literary communities and considerations of literary genres that flourished in early modern Dublin. The volume's broad focus and extended timeline offer an unprecedented and comprehensive consideration of the features of renaissance that may be traced to the city from the fifteenth to the seventeenth century. With contributions from leading scholars in the area of early modern Ireland, including Raymond Gillespie and Andrew Hadfield, students and academics will find the book an invaluable resource for fully appreciating those elements that contributed to the complex literary character of Dublin as a Renaissance city of literature.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Brings a salutary perspective to a marginalized topic-the nature and scope of a literary Renaissance in early modern Dublin. This very appealing volume is notable for its broad historical scope (ranging from the early fifteen-century Memoriale by the Dublin-born notary and legal scribe James Yonge to Anglo-Irish writing for the stage in Restoration Dublin) and the breadth of topics it addresses.' Professor Lowell Gallagher, Studies in English Literature -- .
