Reviews

“Professor Wilkes’s edition will thus serve the fundamental purpose of all scholarly endeavors: it will enable, and contribute to, the continuing conversation.” - Prof. John Gouws North-West University

“Many years of research into Greville have resulted in what is the closest thing to a definitive edition … a major contribution to our understanding of the English Renaissance.” —Prof. A. D. Cousins, Macquerie University

“This masterly edition, through its detailed examination of the texts of Greville’s verse, brings out his versatility as a writer in many genres … the unpacking of Greville’s loaded terms is one of the most intriguing features of the commentary. This exemplary edition of The Complete Poems and Plays of Fulke Greville warrants the traditional accolade of ‘monumental’.” — Prof. Margaret Harris, University of Sydney
