MEDIA REVIEWS

'This is an exciting, ground-breaking collection from a sterling cast of contributors, which launches our re-imaginings of the English and European Renaissance in film, media and popular culture into the twenty-first century.'

- Robert Shaughnessy, University of Kent, UK

'In this interdisciplinary, cutting-edge volume, Burnett and Streete have selected eleven...striking essays which in their coverage of topics as diverse as Spanish Shakespeare cinema, hit television shows like The Tudors, and Renaissance role-playing games emphasize that the living, breathing period we call the Renaissance is anything but history.'

- Greg Colon Semenza, University of Connecticut, USA

'This unique collection of essays looks at the European Renaissance as it is represented in genres like reality shows, television documentaries and series, movies, stage productions, and pageants ... Marvellously focused and rich in scope.'

- Ton Hoenselaars, Utrecht University, the Netherlands
