The texts are extensively annotated, with notes both explaining unfamiliar words and providing cultural and historical contexts.
"For the anthologist, the literature of the Tudor period poses extraordinarily difficult choices, and this collection meets that challenge with the best solutions yet. Most refreshing to see, for me, are the selections from William Baldwin, Barnabe Riche, Will Kemp, and Richard Barnfield, the many women writers, the popular pamphlets, jest books, witchcraft treatises, the voyages, and the song books, without compromising the representation of the better-known writers. The introductions are judicious and informative and together make up a complete introduction to the authors and works of the period. This compendium is destined to become the anthology of choice for teaching the literature of the sixteenth century." -- Don Beecher, Carleton University
