'Thomas Heywood and the Classical Tradition addresses an important gap in our appreciation of how one of Shakespeare's most prolific and unfairly denigrated contemporaries read and reworked the classics throughout his long literary career, which spanned the reigns of Elizabeth I, James I and Charles I.
'All in all, this book vindicates an author who, often criticized for yoking together wildy different registers and styles, actually wore his classicism with great skill, originality and aplomb.'
Sonia Massai, King's College London
'This edited collection revitalises research on Heywood by drawing together studies which elucidate important themes and practices that inform all his many writings. Alongside these significant findings are intricate details and close readings that illuminate neglected works and highlight their sophistication.'
