Comic Spenser

Manchester University Press

The Manchester Spenser is a monograph and text series devoted to historical and textual approaches to Edmund Spenser – to his life, times, places, works, and contemporaries.

A growing body of work in Spenser and Renaissance studies, fresh with confidence and curiosity and based on solid historical research, is being written in response to a general sense that our ability to interpret texts is becoming limited without the excavation of further knowledge. So the importance of research in nearby disciplines is quickly being recognised, and interest renewed: history, archaeology, religious or theological history, book history, translation, lexicography, commentary, and glossary – these require treatment for and by students of Spenser.

The Manchester Spenser, to feed, foster, and build on these refreshed attitudes, aims to publish reference tools, critical, historical, biographical, and archaeological monographs on or related to Spenser, from several disciplines, and to publish editions of primary sources and classroom texts of a more wide-ranging scope.

The Manchester Spenser consists of work with stamina, high standards of scholarship and research, adroit handling of evidence, rigour of argument, exposition, and documentation.

The series will encourage and assist research into, and develop the readership of, one of the richest and most complex writers of the early modern period.
