Amy Bowles and Jitka Stollova: winner and runner-up of the Review of English Studies Essay Prize Competition

PhD student Amy Bowles has won the annual Review of English Studies Essay Prize Competition with a submission entitled ‘Dressing the Text: Ralph Crane’s Scribal Publication of Drama’.

PhD student Jitka Stollova was a runner-up with an essay on the Beaumont and Fletcher folio and the London book trade in the 1640s and 50s.

The Review said: ‘This year we received many strong entries from around the world, but (Amy’s) stood out to the editors for the rigorous way in which it takes traditional editorial and bibliographical concerns and explores their larger implications, achieving in the process a substantial and original contribution to a contentious scholarly area.’
