"One day we were teaching Renaissance literature to small groups of somewhat bored students, the next "Renaissance Self-Fashioning "had appeared, and suddenly studying the Renaissance was all the rage, exciting and new. Stephen Greenblatt's book entirely altered the critical landscape-showing with compelling lucidity that social anthropology and psychoanalysis were essential tools for understanding Renaissance writing. I can't think of any other critical work since T. S. Eliot to have made that kind of impact."
