Subject: List of Reference Tools
I'm writing to ask for your help in compiling a list of important and
useful reference tools for the study of early modern English literature
and culture, aimed mainly at graduate students; texts such as the
Berger, Thomas, William C. Bradford, and Sidney L. Sondergard. An Index
to Characters in Early Modern English Drama: Printed Plays, 1500-1660.
Bolgar, R. R. The Classical Heritage and its Beneficiaries. [Contains a
list of what was translated into English (and French and Italian) and
The Penguin Dictionary of English and European History, 1485-1789. Ed.
E. N. Williams. Penguin, 1980.
Tilley, Morris P. A Dictionary of the Proverbs in England in the
Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries. Ann Arbor: U of Michigan P, 1950.
I know we're thinking mainly about drama on this list, but I welcome
additions in all fields related to the period. Given the widely varied
multi-disciplinary work we see so much of, I'm hoping to spread the net
as wide as possible. I'll happily share the list when it's completed.
Many thanks in advance.
