A founding editor of the journal Representations, he is a key figure in what is known as New Historicism (or cultural poetics). Beginning with the publication of Renaissance Self-Fashioning in 1984, his books have had a transformative effect on scholarship and teaching of Shakespeare and the English Renaissance. He is also the general editor of The Norton Shakespeare (1997).

Michael Payne is John P. Crozer Professor of English Literature at Bucknell University. His recent publications include A Dictionary of Critical and Cultural Theory (1996), Reading Knowledge (1997), and Renaissance Literature: An Anthology (2003) – all published by Blackwell Publishing.
