Summary
Explores the poetry of the Renaissance, from Dunbar in the late fifteeth century to the Songs and Sonnets of John Donne in the early seventeenth. The book offers more than the wealth of literature discussed: it is a pioneering work in its own right, bringing the insights of contemporary literary and cultural theory to an overview of the period
