This comprehensive and subtle study is a near-definitive account of this process, and adumbrates a fascinating new model of literary influence. * Tom MacFaul, Notes and Queries *
...fine book...a work of assiduous scholarship which is a pleasure to read. * Helen Hackett, TLS *
extraordinary erudition, an impressive command of the manuscript tradition, densely packed and rhetorically informed readings...is a book that every scholar of English Renaissance literature should read. * Robert E. Stillman, Seventeeth-Century News *
an encyclopaedic study of Sidney's work and Sidney's influence, a sweeping, comprehensive gathering of Sidney's affectedness and his effectiveness, a work that combines judicious interpretation of personal and literary history alongside detailed sensitive readings that are often fresh, always revelatory, and sometimes dazzling...a compelling and indispensible study * Arthur F. Kinney, Review of English Studies, Volume 58, Number 237 *
Readers will find Writing after Sidney extremely useful because of its interconnections among so many writers in the period; they will also find some brilliant literary analysis. * William C. Johnson, Sixteenth Century Journal *
[A] searching and detailed study... Gavin Alexander has succeeded admirably in shedding new light on how and why Sidney figured so large in the literary consciousness of his generation. * The Cambridge Quarterly, Volume 36, Number 4 *
