Description: Oxford, Blackwell, 2003. 4to. xxix, (i), 1161, (1) pp. softcover. Isbn 9780631198987. Bibliography. Index of titles and first lines. Responding to the broadening of the canon in recent years, this accessible anthology makes available the most important poetry and prose from the period between the accession of Henry VIII in 1509 and the English Revolution of 1640. Arranged chronologically, generous selections of familiar Renaissance figures, such as More, Wyatt, Tyndale, Spenser, Sidney, Shakespeare, Bacon, and Donne, are complemented by a strong emphasis on women writers, including Queen Elizabeth, Aemilia Lanyer, Rachel Speght, Mary Sidney, Martha Moulsworth, Lady Mary Wroth, and Elizabeth Cary. A range of prose works, including biblical translations, illustrates the development of English prose style over the period. The volume also offers a copious selection of carols, ballads, songs, and hymns. Cover with some imperfections, good copy.
