General Editor: Graham Holderness, University of Hertfordshire

Critical Survey addresses central issues of critical practice and literary theory in a language that is clear, concise, and accessible, with a primary focus on Renaissance and Modern writing and culture. The journal combines criticism with reviews and poetry, providing an essential resource for everyone involved in the field of literary studies.

"A superb journal, fast becoming 'required reading', especially for those interested in cutting-edge work in early modern studies." —Barbara Hodgdon, Drake University

"A lively, inventive and eminently readable journal." —Catherine Belsey

Berghahn Journals is pleased to announce the addition of Critical Survey to JSTOR! All of the back issues, over 20 years of content, are now available.
