On Shakespeare and Early Modern Literature: Essays

Oxford University Press, 2004 - Literary Criticism - 266 pages
0 Reviews
This richly informed collection brings together his essays on such major figures as Sir Philip Sidney and Milton, but also less celebrated writers, including Thomas Carew and, in a new piece, William Drummond, to reconfigure the familiar and help extend the canon. Shakespeare looms large in this volume and his poems, plays and influence on Keats, are the subject of half the book.
