Pressestimmen"Pye moves with great concision, delivering dazzling insights and startling conjunctions. "The Vanishing" thus makes an important intervention in early modern studies, recalling the promise of 'theory' to advance our understanding of questions of history and representation."--Jonathan Goldberg, author of "Desiring Women Writing: English Renaissance Examples"
