Designed for both students and general readers this introduction to Renaissance and Reformation literature offers a description of early modern habits of writing and reading of publication and stage performance. It considers the ways in which early modern writers constructed the past and designed the present wrote about people and places recovered and adapted classical genres and tackled religious and secular controversies.All these topics are illustrated with a profusion of excerpts from early modern texts including works by More Erasmus Wyatt Spenser Philip and Mary Sidney Marlowe Kyd Shakespeare Campion Daniel Donne Southwell Dekker Taylor 'the water-poet ' Aemilia Lanyer Jonson Chapman Middleton Mary Wroth Ralegh Greville Wotton Herbert and Milton. Throughout readers are reminded that the consequences of the English reformations were as important as the better known influences of the Renaissance.
