Exquisite Mixture: The Virtues of Impurity in Early Modern England (Book)
Title: Exquisite Mixture: The Virtues of Impurity in Early Modern England
Author: Wolfram Schmidgen
Abstract: Exquisite Mixture examines the writing of Robert Boyle, John Locke, Daniel Defoe, and others in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Britain who advocated mixture as a critical element of this belief in English superiority: mixture could produce superior languages, new species, flawless ideas, and resilient civil societies. The author traces the emergence of the valuation of mixture to the political and scientific revolutions of the seventeenth century, and invites the reader to rethink the stories we tell about the development of modern society.

Constructing the Canon of Early Modern Drama (Book)
Title: Constructing the Canon of Early Modern Drama
Author: Jeremy Lopez
Abstract: For 100 years, the drama of Shakespeare's contemporaries has been consistently represented in anthologies, edited texts, and the critical traditon by a familiar group of about two dozen plays running from Kyd's "Spanish Tragedy" to Ford's "'Tis Pity She's a Whore" by way of Dekker, Jonson, Middleton, and Webster. How was this canon created, and what ideological and institutional functions does it serve? What preceded it, and is it possible for it to become something else? Lopez takes up these questions by tracing a history of anthologies of "non-Shakespearean" drama from Robert Dodsley's "Select Collection of Old Plays" (1744) through those recently published by Blackwell, Norton, and Routledge. Containing dozens of short, provocative readings of unfamiliar plays, this book will benefit those who seek a broader sense of the period's dazzling array of forms. (Book Jacket)

Printers without Borders: Translation and Textuality in the Renaissance (Book)
Title: Printers without Borders: Translation and Textuality in the Renaissance
Author: Anne Coldiron
Abstract: This study shows how printing and translation transformed English literary culture in the Renaissance. Focusing on the century after Caxton brought the press to England in 1476, Coldiron illustrates the foundational place of foreign, especially French language, materials. The book reveals unexpected foreign connections between works as different as Caxton's first printed translations, several editions of Book of the Courtier, sixteenth-century multilingual poetry, and a royal Armada broadside. Demonstrating a new way of writing literary history beyond source-influence models, the author treats the patterns and processes of translation and printing.
