14Title:  Writing after Sidney: the literary response to Sir Philip Sidney, 1586-1640   
 Creator:  Alexander, Gavin(English professor) 
 Publication:  Oxford University Press, Oxford, New York, 2006 
 Notes:  Includes bibliographical references (pages 339-361) and index. "Sir Philip Sidney (1554-86), author of the Arcadia, Astrophil and Stella, and The Defence of Poesy, was the most immediately influential writer of the Elizabethan period. Writing After Sidney examine the literary response to this major figure through four writers who had an important stake in his afterlife: his sister Mary Sidney, his brother Robert Sidney, his best friend Fulke Greville, and his niece Mary Wroth. At the same time as these authors wrote their own works in response to Sidney they presented his life and writings to the world, and were shaped by other writers as his literary and political heirs. Readings of these four authors and of Sidney's own work are embedded in a more general study of the literary and cultural scene in the years after Sidney's death, including the work of such writers as Spenser, Jonson, Daniel, Drayton, and Herbert." "The study uses a wide range of manuscript and printed sources, as well as perspectives from Renaissance literary theory, especially rhetoric. It offers a new understanding of the nature of Sidney's impact on the literature of the fifty or so years after his death in 1586 and develops a nuanced approach to the questions of imitation and example so central to Renaissance literature. Writing After Sidney makes a significant contribution to our understanding of how writing of the English Renaissance offered examples to later readers and writers, and of how it encountered and responded to such examples itself."--Jacket.

17Title:  Acting companies and their plays in Shakespeare's London   
 Creator:  Keenan, Siobhan, 1973- | Horace Howard Furness Memorial Library (University of Pennsylvania) 
 Notes:  "Renaissance Acting Companies and their Plays explores the intimate and dynamic relationship between acting companies and playwrights in this seminal era in English theatre history. Siobhan Keenan's analysis includes chapters on the traditions and workings of contemporary acting companies, playwriting practices, stages and staging, audiences and patrons, each illustrated with detailed case studies of individual acting companies and their plays, including troupes such as Lady Elizabeth's players, 'Beeston's Boys' and the King's Men and works by Shakespeare, Jonson, Middleton, Brome and Heywood. We are accustomed to focusing on individual playwrights: Renaissance Acting Companies and their Plays makes the case that we also need to think about the companies for which dramatists wrote and with whose members they collaborated, if we wish to better understand the dramas of the English Renaissance stage"-- "Renaissance Acting Companies and their Plays explores the intimate and dynamic relationship between acting companies and playwrights in this seminal era in English theatre history.
