Summary
"An innovative study of the emergent Renaissance practice of making epitaphic gestures within other English genres. This book argues that the post-Reformation preoccupation with textual remembrance led to a remarkable proliferation of epitaphs beyond the putative tomb. A poetics of quotation uncovers the ways in which writers have recited these texts within new contexts. This book modifies conventional genre studies by detailing the situatedness of quoted text - a compositional habit that became markedly prevalent with the continued expansion of printing and literacy in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries."--BOOK JACKET
