Editorial Reviews

Review

"One of the crucial contributions Loewenstein makes to Ben Jonson studies involves his untangling of the competitive efforts of printers and stationers to corner the rights to Jonson's texts...Loewenstein's careful reconstruction of Jonson's intense and fractious history with his printers and the complex "story of proprietary negotiation" surrounding the Second Folio of 1640 adds to our understanding of Jonson's singular possessiveness about his texts." Renaissance Quarterly

"Ben Jonson and Possessive Authorship develops a gripping narrative about the serendipitous convergence of institutional competition, intellectual concern, and individual desire." Sixteenth Century Journal

"This, in short, is a stunning study." Studies in English Literature

"On every page of this book, readers will find something stimulating and challenging." Modern Philology

Book Description

Writing before the institution of copyright, Renaissance authors were not recognized as owning their works, yet, in an environment in which the written word could be variously marketed by printers or by acting companies, in an environment in which authors could be held uncomfortably responsible for their writings, we can discover complex stirrings of possessiveness among such writers as Bacon, Heywood, Daniel, Shakespeare, Wither, and--most powerfully and interestingly--Ben Jonson. This book probes the literary and institutional history, the politics, and the psychology of possessive authorship.
