Review of "Self-fashioning and Metamorphosis in Early Modern English Literature" edited by Olav Lausund and Stein Haugom Olsen
MetadataShow full item record
This is a satisfying collection of essays derived from a conference hosted by the English Department of the University of Oslo: interesting, original, sensible, and based on sound scholarship. [...] The themes of the book are metamorphosis, self-fashioning, and power. While the essays invariably concern themselves with one or more of these matters, there is no strained or artificial attempt to ensure that each author deals with all three, leave alone that some kind of impossible-to-achieve unity is imposed on the book as a whole.
