Dr Raphael Lyne’s new book Memory and Intertextuality in Renaissance Literature┬áis published in February 2016 (Cambridge University Press, 2016).

Using ideas from cognitive science this work sets up some new ways of thinking about how poems remember one another, but keeps coming back to the idea that the poems and plays are themselves essays and experiments on the subject of memory. For more thoughts on the topic see Dr Lyne’s blog.
