Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

The editors deserve to be congratulated on an elegant and provocative collection which in its multi-vocality suggests numerous directions for future research. (Jason Scott-Warren, Notes and Queries)

The Handbook is an extremely valuable aid to the fruitful exploration of the varieties of Elizabethan thought and experience. (C. S. L. Davies, English Historical Review)

a major step forward ... The Oxford Handbook of Holinshed's Chronicles is a major achievement and will be welcomed by early modern scholars of all stripes. (Christopher Highley, Huntington Library Quarterly)

What editors Paulina Kewes, Ian W. Archer, and Felicity Heal have assembled in the Handbook is a thorough overview of the competing concerns that surround the Chronicles ... At almost eight hundred pages long, the Handbook threatens, upon first appearance, to be an unwieldy account of the Chronicles; and yet, as the reader begins "actively to engage with the text," it becomes three-dimensional in the composite perspective formed through the many varied angles from which the Chronicles are viewed. (William J. Humphries, The Spenser Review)

Présentation de l'éditeur

The Chronicles of England, Scotland and Ireland (1577, 1587), issued under the name of Raphael Holinshed, was the crowning achievement of Tudor historiography, and became the principal source for the historical writings of Spenser, Daniel and, above all, Shakespeare. While scholars have long been drawn to Holinshed for its qualities as a source, they typically dismissed it as a baggy collection of materials, lacking coherent form and analytical insight. This
condescending verdict has only recently given way to an appreciation of the literary and historical qualities of these chronicles.

The Handbook is a major interdisciplinary undertaking which gives the lie to Holinshed's detractors, and provides original interpretations of a book that has lacked sustained academic scrutiny. Bringing together leading specialists in a variety of fields - literature, history, religion, classics, bibliography, and the history of the book - the Handbook demonstrates that the Chronicles powerfully reflect the nature of Tudor thinking about the past, about politics and
society, and about the literary and rhetorical means by which readers might be persuaded of the truth of narrative. The volume shows how distinctive it was for one book to chronicle the history of three nations of the British archipelago.

The various sections of the Handbook analyse the making of the two editions of the Chronicles; the relationship of the work to medieval and early modern historiography; its formal properties, genres and audience; attitudes to politics, religion, and society; literary appropriations; and the parallel descriptions and histories of England, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales. The result is a seminal study that shows unequivocally the vitality and complexity of the chronicle form in the
late sixteenth century.

Many have heard of Holinshed's Chronicles but few have actually read any portion of them. They are best known as the sources for many of Shakespeare's plays, however they have rarely been studied in their own right. Through both this book and their website of The Holinshed Project, the editors from Oxford have brought this incredible work to light for the first time in centuries, making it clear that they should be studied in their own right by students of literature, history and historiography. Although the book is expensive, it is worth it for the serious scholar. More casual students may want to try first the Holinshed Project website, which contains the full text of both original versions of Holinshed's Chronicles (1577 and 1587) along with some representative "Working Papers" from the handbook. Try especially Paulina Kewes' "Narrative Historiography and the Rules of Succession" which completely changes the perspective on Elizabethan views of political issues (divine right of kings, etc.).
