Most widely held works by Alison Shell
Catholicism, controversy, and the English literary imagination, 1558-1660 by Alison Shell( Book )
21 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in English and held by 449 libraries worldwide
The Catholic contribution to English literary culture has been widely neglected or misunderstood. This book sets out to rehabilitate a wide range of Catholic imaginative writing, while exposing the role of anti-Catholicism as an imaginative stimulus to mainstream writers in Tudor and Stuart England
Shakespeare and religion by Alison Shell( Book )
18 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and held by 321 libraries worldwide
This thoughtful study sets Shakespeare in the religious context of his times. It presents a balanced, up-to-date account of current biographical and critical debates, and addresses the fascinating, under-studies topic of how Shakespeare's writing was perceived by those literary contemporaries whose priorities were more obviously religious than his own. It advances new readings of several plays, including Hamlet, King Lear and The Winter's Tale, and draws on under-exploited contemporary analogues, ranging from conversion narratives, books of devotion and polemical pamphlets to manuscript drama and emblems. Alison Shell describes a writer whose language is saturated in religious discourse but whose invariable practice is to subordinate religious matter to the aesthetic demands of the work. For Shakespeare, as for few of his contemporaries, the Judaeo-Christian story is something less than a master narrative. -- Back cover
Oral culture and Catholicism in early modern England by Alison Shell( Book )
19 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 315 libraries worldwide
"After the Reformation, England's Catholics were marginalised and officially excluded from using printed media for propagandist ends. Hence, they turned to oral media, such as ballads and stories, to plead their case and maintain contact with their community. Building on the interest in Catholic literature which has developed in early modern studies over the last few years, Alison Shell examines the relationship between Catholicism and oral culture from the mid sixteenth to the eighteenth centuries." "This book is an important contribution to the rediscovery of the writings and culture of the Catholic community and will be of great interest to scholars of early modern literature, history and theology."--Jacket
The book trade & its customers, 1450-1900 : historical essays for Robin Myers ( Book )
12 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 282 libraries worldwide
Collected here as a homage to Robin Myers, respected book trade historian and editor of the Publishing Pathways Series devoted to studies in book trade and publishing history, these essays uncover the connections between the mechanics of the book trade and their human ends in the learning and transmission of knowledge. They show that the processes and materials involved in the production of books pave the way for larger economic and social issues ranging from business connections, patents, copyrights and their transfer, London's relations with Ireland and America, the Stationers' Company and what transpires when books pass into the hands of customers. This work also includes a memoir of Myers along with a bibliography of her published works. - See more at: -- Publisher's website
