Spenser Studies is devoted to the study of Edmund Spenser as well as the poetry of Renaissance England. Contributions examine Spenser’s place in literary history, the social and religious contexts of his writing, and the philosophical and conceptual problems he grapples with in his art. The journal also features work on Renaissance literary culture, broadly conceived. Past issues have published studies ranging from the diction of Stephen Hawes to female authorship in Mary Wroth’s Urania to the influence of English Renaissance sonneteers on William Butler Yeats.
