Edited collections can be a little hit and miss, and this one is certainly uneven. The introduction by Hillman and Mazzio is good at contextualising the Renaissance discourse of bodily fragmentation and the ideological power of individual body parts. Some of the following essays are excellent: Lobanov-Rostovsky, for example, on the eye. But others feel a little tired (e.g. Vickers on the blazon... again). So a mixed bag, but the good stuff is very good.
