"Masten's is a lucidly argued study of the relationship between such issues as dramatic collaboration and authorship, and the notions of subjectivity and erotic practices....His wonderful reading of Pericles is just one of the many splendid philological readings in which Masten recovers for us early modern erotic taxonomy, revealing the layers of the erotic, sexual, 'queer' meaning embedded in the depth of language....The Renaissance gender historiography, especially queer studies, has benefited greatly from the orginality of Masten's book." Goran V. Stanivukovic, Boston Book Review
"...His analysis also brings out more personal and erotic aspects of this partnership." Studies in English Literature

"...Masten's work is exemplary; his text demonstrates thorough research and documentation...." Dana E. Aspinall, Sixteenth Century Journal
"...Masten's provocative thesis has significant implications for our understanding of authorship, sexuality, and ideological transformation in seventeenth-century England, and should be taken as a necessary point of depaarture for future scholarship in these areas."
