Isabel G. MacCaffrey Prize for the best book on Spenser and Renaissance Literature [link]

Organization: International Spenser Society [link]
Abstract: The Isabel MacCaffrey Award was established at the Spenser Society’s annual meeting in 1984 to recognize the year’s best essay in Spenser studies. The first award was given in 1985. Until 2003, preference in the selection was given to junior scholars. In 2003, the prize was restructured to recognize books and essays in separate (usually alternating) competitions, and to give equal consideration to junior and senior scholars.
