Alternating Current by Octavio Paz
"Alternating Current" by Octavio Paz

More About the Author

I teach Shakespeare and Renaissance Literature at St. John's in New York. Right now I'm working on early modern maritime culture, including a new book, *At the Bottom of Shakespeare's Ocean* (2009), a gallery exhibition at the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, DC, "Lost at Sea: The Ocean in the English Imagination, 1550 - 1750" (June - September, 2010), and a work-in-progress on shipwreck narratives from Shakespeare through Defoe.

I've also written books on prose romance in the age of Shakespeare (*Romance for Sale in Early Modern England*) and early modern criminal literature (*Rogues and Early Modern English Literature*).

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Derek Alwes on June 30, 2004
Format: Hardcover
This new collection of essays is a unique volume that will not remain that way. The rogue literature of the English Renaissance has been underappreciated for too long, and this work is a significant step toward greater popularity and increased scholarly interest. The essays in this volume demonstrate why Renaissance rogue literature should be of considerable contemporary interest by showing how a social underclass is culturally constructed and how that class reflects the dominant culture in revealing ways.
Like any collection of essays, this collection is a bit uneven in quality, and among the best are three that are reprinted from earlier publications, but most of the essays are very good indeed. And, given the rather narrow historical subject matter, the treatments of rogues in the volume are surprisingly wide-ranging both in material and in theoretical approaches.
This is an important book--one that every early modern scholar needs and that even non-scholars can read with pleasure.
