Some brief overview of this book

Stephen Greenblatt is one of the most influential practitioners of new historicism. This Reader makes available in one volume Greenblatts most important writings on culture, Renaissance studies, and Shakespeare. It also features occasional pieces on subjects as diverse as story-telling and miracles, demonstrating the range of his cultural interests. Taken together, the texts collected here dispel the idea that new historicism is antithetical to literary and aesthetic value.

ne is John P. Crozer Professor of English Literature at Bucknell University. His recent publications include A Dictionary of Critical and Cultural Theory (1996), Reading Knowledge (1997), and Renaissance Literature: An Anthology (2003) – all published by Blackwell Publishing.

Good To Know

Some interesting outtakes from our interview with Greenblatt: As a child, I loved to read so much so that I can remember my mother calling to me, ‘Stevie, youll ruin your eyes. Put down that book and come watch I Love Lucy. My father was a marvelous, virtually obsessive storyteller. Though I have spent much of my adult life thinking about Shakespeare, my first encounter with Shakespeare was a disaster. In junior high school, I found As You Like It quite possibly the most tedious and annoying thing I had ever read. I have interests and hobbies outside my work, of course, but the crucial thing to say is that I dont experience a great divide between my work and my pleasure. On the contrary.
