'This exceptionally wide-ranging, lucid and informative selection of texts pulls off a brilliant trick: it makes the strange places of the past accessible while revealing at the same time their fascinating variousness and complexity. It's not only a handbook for beginners but a treasure trove for those who already know their way around.' - Felicity Riddy, Emerita Professor of English and Related Literature and former Deputy Vice-Chancellor, University of York, UK
