My colleague and friend Jonathan Gil Harris has just published his new book Untimely Matter in the Time of Shakespeare. One reason to purchase or shoplift the tome is that -- unlike those works that we complain about here at ITM that pretend medievalists have never examined the topics they explore -- this volume is quite generous: many of our favorite communal citations from this blog are in the bibliography (and, more importantly, within the work). A second reason is that the project is brilliant. Here me now, O readers: buy this book.
And no, I am not getting any kickbacks for saying that. I really am that much of a fan of Gil's scholarship.
