Adam Smyth is Professor of English Literature and the History of the Book at Balliol College, Oxford. He works on the intersection of the literary and the material, the archival and the canonical, particularly (but not exclusively) in the early modern period. His most recent book is Material Texts in Early Modern England (Cambridge University Press, forthcoming, 2018), which explores the inventive materiality of early modern texts, and the remarkable things readers did to books in the name of reading (cutting, pasting, annotating, burning).
