Poets Ranked by Beard Weight is a tongue-in-cheek classic of Edwardian esoterica, a privately printed leaflet offered by subscription to the informed man of fashion and as a divertissement au courant for the reading bins and cocktail tables of parlor cars, and smoking lounges of gentlemen’s clubs. Typifying a once-popular but nowadays seldom-encountered species of turn-of-the-century ephemera, it has become a rarity much prized by bibliophiles. See how the beards of Walt Whitman and Henry David Thoreau stack up against those of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and Alfred Lord Tennyson. Also includes: Fundamentals of Beard Flirtation, in which readers learn the etiquette and code of beard poses and gestures; fortune-telling through beard-reading (pogonomancy); beard-based folklore and controversies (“Public Statues: Dignitaries or Dust Catchers?”)

By attending to the multiple values signalled by beards in early modern England, this study elucidates how fetish objects are the vehicles through which phenomena forms and informs ideological systems of power. Providing detailed discussions of not only male beards but also beardless boys, female beards, and half-bearded hermaprodites, "Beard Fetish in Early Modern England: Sex, Gender, and Registers of Value" argues that attending to the Renaissance beard as a fetish object exposes the cultural production of meaning. Author Mark Albert Johnston mines a diverse cross-section of contemporary discourses - adult and children's drama, narrative verse and prose, popular ballads, epigrams and proverbs, historical accounts, pamphlet literature, diaries, letters, wills, court records and legal documents, medical and surgical manuals, lectures, sermons, almanacs, and calendars - in order to provide proof for his cultural claims. Johnston's evidence invokes some of the period's most famous voices - William Shakespeare, Ben Jonson, John Lyly, Phillip Stubbes, John Marston, George Chapman, Thomas Dekker, Thomas Middleton, and Samuel Pepys, for example - but Johnston also introduces us to an array of lesser-known Renaissance authors and playwrights whose works support the notion that the beard was a palimpsestic site of contested meaning at which complex values converge. Johnston's reading of fetish engages Marxist, Freudian, and anthropological theories of the phenomenon and proposes a synthesis among them that would simultaneously acknowledge their divergent emphases - sexual, economic, racial - while suggesting that the synthesis of diverse registers that fetish accomplishes facilitates its cultural and psychic naturalizing function.
