The Complete Works of Thomas Watson (1556-1592) [2 vol set]

£200.00

Product description

The definitive work on this now-almost-forgotten Renaissance poet, this comprehensive study appeared in 1996, and provides an inexhaustible source of detail and information to the student of Elizabethan poetry. It was awarded the Adele Mellen Prize 'for its distinguished contribution to scholarship'.

Dana Sutton is Professor Emeritus in Classics at the University of California, Irvine (UCI), and has recently devoted herself to producing editions of poetry and drama written in Latin in England during Shakespeare's time. She also maintains an ongoing data base of Homeric papyri and the variant textual readings they present, distributed by the American Philological Association. She has published book-length studies on the Greek satyr play, Aristophanes, Sophocles, Euripides, Seneca, classical comedy, and the theory of humour, and is well-regarded as a serious academic in the field.

The books are in excellent, almost new, condition, bound in bright red cloth with the publisher's logo in gilt on the front cover, and all other details in gilt on the spine. A small black mark on the front cover of Vol. II is matched by similar small marks on the back cover of Vol. I, but otherwise there are no external signs of use or wear. Inside, the binding is tight, and all pages are clean and bright. A previous owner's name is inscribed in black ink on the front fep of Vol. I, and one can just discern some earlier pencilled sale details beneath. The front fep of Vol. II merely states "(2 vols)" in pencil (see photo). An excellent copy of a valuable and scholarly text.
