This collection of original essays brings together some of the most prominent figures in new historicist and cultural materialist approaches to the early modern period, and offers a new focus on the literature and culture of the Renaissance. Traditionally, Renaissance studies have concentrated on the human subject. The essays collected here bring objects - purses, clothes, tapestries, houses, maps, feathers, communion wafers, tools, pages, skulls - back into view. As a result, the much-vaunted early modern subject ceases to look autonomous and sovereign, but is instead caught up in a vast and uneven world of objects which he and she makes, owns, values, imagines, and represents. This book puts things back into relation with people; in the process, it elicits new critical readings, and new cultural configurations.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This year's award for a must-read collection goes to Subject and Object in Renaissance Culture, with its knock-them-dead title. Confronted by such a work and its truly remarkable phalanx of academic stars, what reviewer could resist...they are as intelligent as they are well known." Studies in English Literature
"This focus on rethinking the relationship between subject and object is certainly worthwhile and novel. And the essays that follow include some dazzling explorations of this theme." Jvotsna G. Singh, Shakespeare Quarterly
