CCCS Director Awarded the 2010 Translation or Teaching Edition Prize by the Society for the Study of Early Modern Women
Susan M. Felch, professor in the English Department at Calvin College and director of the CCCS, has been awarded the 2010 Translation or Teaching Edition Prize by the Society for the Study of Early Modern Women for her book Elizabeth I and Her Age (W. W. Norton, 2009), co-edited with Donald Stump of Saint Louis University.
Elizabeth I and Her Age, which is part of the well-regarded Norton Critical Editions series, presents texts written by and about Queen Elizabeth from her childhood as the second daughter of Henry VIII to memories of her reign penned after her death, as well as historical and critical essays. At nearly 900 pages, it is a considerable work of scholarship, with each annotated selection freshly edited from original sources. As one reviewer notes, “Stump’s and Felch’s selection of materials to illustrate [Elizabeth’s importance] is judicious and at times inspired, including such usual suspects as Foxe, Shakespeare and Fletcher’s Henry VIII, Spenser, Heywood, Mulcaster, and Gascoigne, as well as rather less usual ones such as John Bale, William Whittingham, Anne Vaughan Lock, Edward Hake, and William Elderton.”
