Shaun Russell is a Senior Lecturer working in the fields of early modern literature, book history and composition. Though he has a keen interest in early modern drama, his current research delves into questions of intention (authorial and otherwise) as it pertains to mid-seventeenth-century editions of poetry. Why certain editions were published, and who made those decisions is key to understanding why poems look the way they do, and why we're even able to read themĀ at all. Beyond this book history focus, Shaun also has a particular interest in poetic forms (especially the sonnet), seventeenth century women's writing, and writing, information and literacy in general.
