Wilhelm Raabe, German Moonlight / Höxter and Corvey / At the Sign of the Wild Man
Translated by Alison E. Martin, Erich Lehmann, and Michael Ritterson
New Translations 3

  • ‘A major accomplishment. Raabe’s is a voice which deserves to be heard, and an oeuvre which deserves to be appreciated across linguistic boundaries. These translations allow the reader with no knowledge of German and little appreciation of the context of the originals to hear an authentic version of that voice, to understand something of the world it can open up, and so to appreciate the writer’s achievement. They merit an enthusiastic response.’ — William Webster, Translation and Literature 24, 2015, 121

Elizabethan Seneca: Three Tragedies
Edited by James Ker and Jessica Winston
Tudor and Stuart Translations 8

  • ‘This important edition will act as a stimulus for further comparative work: it will help to reconfigure our valuation of Elizabethan Seneca not just in terms of its legacy (important though that is) but as an innovative literary endeavour in its own right.’ — Sarah Dewar-Watson, Times Literary Supplement 5 April 2013, 27
  • ‘It is appropriate and welcome that one of the first volumes in the attractive new MHRA series gives [the translations] the stage to themselves for a while, and an occasion even for those who already more or less know them to look at them afresh.’ — Gordon Braden, Translation and Literature 22, 2013, 274
  • ‘Seneca is enjoying a renaissance of sorts, prompting reevaluations of both his plays and their afterlives. This intelligently conceived and carefully edited volume offers a valuable opportunity to examine the evidence firsthand ... This volume is clear, intelligent, and informed by current scholarship; it will be valuable for scholars with an interest in Seneca, Elizabethan translation, classical reception, academic drama, and/or the development of tragedy.’ — Tanya Pollard, Renaissance Quarterly 66, 2013, 1513-14
  • ‘This edition will be tremendously useful not just to scholars working on classical transmission or early modern drama, but also to those looking at Elizabethan literary culture as a whole. Ker and Winston successfully demonstrate the centrality of Seneca to the Elizabethan literary landscape and open doors for a wide variety of potential areas of enquiry.’ — Kavita Mudan Finn, Sixteenth Century Journal 45, 2014, 474-75
  • ‘An excellent entry-point for students to the contexts both of the Senecan originals and of the Tudor translations.’ — Andrew J. Power, Modern Language Review 110, 2015, 238-39 (full text online)
