[The Handbook's] opening chronology of key events in political and religious history alongside those of the literary history of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries provides a helpful orientation for students in particular. * David Parry, The Glass *
A work of considerable substance, offering its own richness and depth of thought at the same time that it insistently beckons readers into wider conversations. With thirty-nine essays, the volume furnishes students of the period with many possible points of entry, while the essays themselves present innumerable trajectories for further investigation. Lastly, in an appendix Jesse David Sharpe provides a primer on research methods that supplies useful guidance to those beginning such journeys. * James Ross Macdonald, Modern Language Review *
Offers fresh interpretations of a host of topics springing from an incredibly fecund era of religious reflection in English literature, the 16th and 17th centuries . . . Of uniformly high quality, the essays are diverse in terms of methodology and approach. * S. Gowler, CHOICE *
The two editors, Andrew Hiscock and Helen Wilcox, should be congratulated for having devised a strategy to explore and present the relevant issues that is as rigorous as it is effective. This book will be an indispensable reference for all good literature or religion libraries. * Commentaire [translated from French] *
This is a distinguished volume . . . and a great deal of first class scholarship, and its editors are to be congratulated on their work in bringing it all together. A brief review can barely do it justice, and it deserves to be widely used and read. * David Jasper, Journal of Anglican Studies *
