   schema:description "Recognizing that every literary era presents scholars with particular challenges, this volume describes best practices and important reference resources, both print and electronic, that can be used to conduct literary research of the British Renaissance and early modern period of English literature. Although the focus is England, the book also addresses Scotland, Wales, and Ireland. Literary Research and the British Renaissance and Early Modern Period examines specific research characteristics integral to studying these periods, including a more inclusive canon and the predominance of Shakespeare, a dual environment of print and manuscript production, the challenges of reading early modern handwriting, a lack of reviewing media, the role of translations, and researching nonstandard genres. Central to this work and to literary research of the era are the equally valid approaches of studying this literature through the more traditional Renaissance lens and varying theoretical approaches falling under the rubric "early modern." Jennifer Bowers and Peggy Keeran explore primary and secondary resources, including general literary research guides; union library catalogs; print and online bibliographies; scholarly journals; manuscripts and archives; microfilm and digitization projects; seventeenth-century periodicals; contemporary reception; translations and lexicons; genres; and electronic texts, journals, and Web resources. Each chapter addresses how research methods and tools are best used to extract relevant information and compare and evaluate sources. The strengths and weaknesses of core and specialized electronic and print research tools and standard search techniques are also examined, making this book invaluable for guiding any scholar of the British Renaissance and early modern era."@en ;
