Editorial Reviews

Review

‘This volume is an ingenious and persuasive tour de force of interdisciplinary research. Highly recommended.’

Review

“A major contribution to early modern literary studies, Dire Straits surfaces watery connections between familiar figures, including Spenser, Shakespeare, and Milton, and less well-known ones, including William Bourne and John Cleveland. Elizabeth Jane Bellamy reveals the struggles of English poets to re-define cold and distant British coastlines against sun-drenched and classical Mediterranean shores. Readers interested in the fluvial shapes of English poetry, the influence of the classics, and the career paths of these writers will find much of value here.”
