              The advent of relatively cheap editions of poetry in the mid-16th century produced an explosion of verse, much of which represented the first person speaker as a version of the author. This work examines ways in which writers harnessed verse for self-promotional purposes.

              Hamlin's study provides the first full-scale account of the reception and literary appropriation of ancient scepticism in Elizabethan and Jacobean England (c. 1570-1630). Offering abundant archival evidence as well as fresh treatments of Florio's Montaigne and Bacon's career-long... struggle with the challenges of epistemological doubt, Hamlin's book explores the deep connections between scepticism and tragedy in plays ranging from Doctor Faustus and Troilus and Cressida to The Tragedy of Mariam, The Duchess of Malfi, and 'Tis Pity She's a Whore.

              'This Double Voice': Gendered Writing in Early Modern England (Hardback, 2000 ed.)

              The Double Voice reassesses the notions of gender which have been used to analyze Renaissance literature. Rather than assuming that men and women write differently because of background, education, and culture, it tries to unsettle the connections between the sex of the author an...d the constructions of gender in texts, and to reconsider the prevalent determinist model of reading which tends to consign women writers to the private, domestic sphere and to render male negotiations of gender invisible and transparent.
