Translation was one of the most important and characteristic forms of writing of Tudor England. This volume draws attention to the key role played by translations in many areas of sixteenth-century culture and in particular its impact on three of the main cultural developments of the Tudor period: humanism, the Reformation, and the growth of a new literature in the vernacular. Highlighting the originality of translations both as literary works in their own right and as active responses to their historical circumstances, Tudor Translation offers provocative new perspectives on the intellectual, political, religious, and literary€history of early modern England. Written by leading scholars from the UK and North America, this volume restores translation to the heart of our understanding of Tudor England and makes a major contribution to the current revival of interest in early modern translation
