SRS Book Series

This series is dedicated to the exploration of the many cultures of knowledge, learning, reading and performing in the Renaissance and Early Modern world (c.1400-c.1700). We invite high quality proposals for monographs and edited volumes from across the wide range of existing and possible future fields of Renaissance and early modern studies.

 

Author of first English novel kept it hidden for ten years – here's why

A dense work of early English prose, strewn throughout with serious and teasing marginalia from its author, might not be the most likely candidate for stage adaptation – but this project has just been undertaken by a team of artists and academics in Sheffield. William Baldwin’s "Beware the Cat", written in 1553, will be performed in September as part of the university’s 2018 Festival of the Mind.

Rachel Stenner and Frances Babbage discuss Baldwin's unique text.
