Year’s Work in English Studies

September 16, 2014

The annual installment of the Year’s Work in English Studies, published by Oxford University Press, is now available online. In the section on “Shakespeare’s tragedies”, Johann Gregory (Cardiff Uni alumnus) reviews two monographs by previous Cardiff University alumni, Joseph Sterrett and Roger Christofides – (The Unheard Prayer: Religious Toleration in Shakespeare’s Drama and Shakespeare and the Apocalypse: Visions of Doom from Early Modern Tragedy to Popular Culture, respectively). Another alumni, Robert Magnani, contributes to the “Chaucer” section. In other news, Neil Badminton (Cardiff University) is the new editor of the Year’s Work in Critical and Cultural Theory, which this year also includes a contribution by Josh Robinson (Cardiff University) on “Poetics”.
