Expanding the scholarly conversation about anonymity in Renaissance
England, this essay collection explores the phenomenon in all its
variety of methods and genres as well as its complex relationship
with its alter ego, attribution studies. Contributors address such
questions as these: What were the consequences of publishing and
reading anonymous texts for Renaissance writers and readers? What
cultural constraints and subject positions made anonymous
publication in print or manuscript a strategic choice? What are the
possible responses to Renaissance anonymity in contemporary
classrooms and scholarly debate? The volume opens with essays
investigating particular texts-poetry, plays, and pamphlets-and the
inflection each genre gives to the issue of anonymity. The
collection then turns to consider more abstract consequences of
anonymity: its function in destabilizing scholarly assumptions
about authorship, its ethical ramifications, and its relationship
to attribution studies.
