Parsing the City updates our understanding of Jacobean city comedy’s discursive role in its London society. Working with three major plays by Ben Jonson and Thomas Middleton and Thomas Dekker, this book develops an updated reading of Jacobean city comedy as a dramatic subgenre whose engagement with early modern London was centrally linguistic and semiotic-- its plays staging and interrogating the city as a series of languages and language problems.

We no longer ascribe the term ’mermaid’ to those we deem sexually or economically threatening; we do not ubiquitously use the mermaid’s image in political propaganda or feature her within our houses of worship; perhaps most notably, we do not entertain the possibility of the mermaid’s existence. This, author Tara Pedersen argues, makes it difficult for contemporary scholars to consider the mermaid as a figure who wields much social significance. During the early modern period, however, this was not the case, and Pedersen illustrates the complicated category distinctions that the mermaid inhabits and challenges in 16th-and 17th-century England. Addressing epistemological questions about embodiment and perception, this study furthers research about early modern theatrical culture by focusing on under-theorized and seldom acknowledged representations of mermaids in English locations and texts. While individuals in early modern England were under pressure to conform to seemingly monolithic ideals about the natural order, there were also significant challenges to this order. Pedersen uses the figure of the mermaid to rethink some of these challenges, for the mermaid often appears in surprising places; she is situated at the nexus of historically specific debates about gender, sexuality, religion, the marketplace, the new science, and the culture of curiosity and travel. Although these topics of inquiry are not new, Pedersen argues that the mermaid provides a new lens through which to look at these subjects and also helps scholars think about the present moment, methodologies of reading, and many category distinctions that are important to contemporary scholarly debates.

The Renaissance is presently the focus for all the new critical theories that reexamine literary texts: feminism, Marxism, deconstruction, postmodernism, and cultural poetics. Renaissance Historicism collects some of the best essays that illustrate all the major traditional methods of historical literary criticism as well as the wide range of new critical perspectives by established authorities and important new voices. Already hailed in Studies in English Literature as the collection which caused "the New Historicism" to enter "into scholarly canonicity," this volume is both an introduction to and survey of a rapidly growing field of debate and achievement. The range of this volume is unmatched in the viewpoints it employs and in the texts and genres it reconsiders. A new preface reviews succinctly all the methods--old and new, scholarly and critical--brought into play by the contributors. The accessibility of the contents makes this collection equally valuable as an introduction to historicism and literary texts and as a reference for future study.
