Spenser Studies

Spenser Studies: A Renaissance Poetry Annual is devoted to the study of Edmund Spenser and the poetry of early modern England. The journal welcomes submissions that examine Spenser's place in literary history, the social and religious contexts of his writing, and the philosophical and conceptual problems he grapples with in his art. Beside articles directly concerned with Spenser's poetry, past issues have contained studies ranging from the diction of Stephen Hawes to female authorship in Mary Wroth's Urania to the influence of English Renaissance sonneteers on William Butler Yeats. The journal is the premier outlet for innovative work on Spenser and his poetic contexts, widely construed.

Studies in the Age of Chaucer

Studies in the Age of Chaucer is the yearbook of the New Chaucer Society. It publishes articles on the writing of Chaucer and his contemporaries, their antecedents and successors, and their intellectual and social contexts. More generally, articles explore the culture and writing of later medieval Britain (1200-1500). The journal publishes one volume per year.
