Reviews

Barber provides the most throught study I have seen of this period. The book should be invaluable to any university with a strong program in English that includes teaching the history of the language. -- Catherine von Schon, SUNY at Stony Brook A handy introductory work for students of the English language, and suitable for class use in university departments of English. -- Matti Rissanen The author's own greatest contribution is undoubtedly to have put together an outline of thewhole period in all its aspects. -- Martyn Wakelin The only book-length study of its subject, Early Modern English fills a well-defined need, being more detailed than the general histories of the language can be, but comprehensive as the period studies of aspects the language are not. An eminently readable book. -- Manfred Gorlach, University of Cologne Barber provides the most throught study I have seen of this period.
