About the Author

Michael Wyatt is an independent scholar. His work is engaged with the pre-modern cultural histories of Italy, England and France, particularly questions of translation as both a textual practice and a socio-political phenomenon. He is the author of The Italian Encounter with Tudor England: A Cultural Politics of Translation (2005) and co-edited (with Deanna Shemek) Writing Relations, American Scholars in Italian Archives: Essays for Franca Nardelli Petrucci and Armando Petrucci (2008). He is currently working on a second monograph, John Florio and the Circulation of Stranger Cultures in Early Stuart Britain, a critical edition of Florio's 1603 translation of Montaigne, The Essayes or Morall, Politike and Millitarie Discourses, and he is an associate editor of The Encyclopedia of Renaissance Philosophy.

Reviews

'These [essays] are not merely well-written outlines of specific topics, but provide access to rare sources and offer refreshing insights and interdisciplinary connections ... In a word, literature, in the Renaissance, is encyclopaedic. And the Companion lavishly demonstrates this through its sheer thematic variety.' Nicola Gardini, The Times Literary Supplement
