Literature and the Image of Man
This volume’s predominant theme is bourgeois mentality and its historical development. The works of Lope de Vega, Calderˇn, Cervantes, and Shakespeare, among others, are analyzed within the historical framework of the decline of feudalism and the rise of the absolute regimes. Those of MoliÚre and Goethe are set against the background of an evolving and consolidating bourgeois society in Western Europe.

Page 17 - Tired with all these, for restful death I cry, As to behold desert a beggar born, And needy nothing trimm'd in jollity...
Page 17 - And strength by limping sway disabled, And art made tongue-tied by authority, And folly doctor-like controlling skill, And simple truth miscall'd simplicity, And captive good attending captain ill ; Tir'd with all these, from these would I be gone, Save that, to die, I leave my love alone.
