Katharine Briggs Award 2018: Runner Up Atkinson's readings . . . prove to be critical, and critically needed, engagements that seek to account for examples that disrupt the narratives of literary history without entirely scrapping that history. HUNTINGTON LIBRARY QUARTERLY Both ballad and literary scholars will have their understanding of how ballads encode the past enriched. Throughout, Atkinson is scrupulous about what claims his evidence will bear; he knows the archive is far from neat, and his prudence makes his ambitious claims about the ballad more persuasive. MODERN PHILOLOGY Atkinson rightly points to the importance of the past - not only in creating the histories of the ballad, but also within the texts themselves. His analysis is based on careful scrutiny of the available texts and histories: he points us in the direction of a fuller and richer history. MUSICULTURES
