About this product
- DescriptionA fresh and exciting approach to the poetry and prose of the Renaissance which discusses the best-known writers and poets of the age Shakespeare, Milton, Spenser and Donne alongside writers much newer to the canon, such as Mary Sidney, Anne Locke and Aemilia Lanyer. The cultural context of the period is covered extensively in chapters focusing on religion, exploration and gender, and relevant modern critical theory is integrated throughout.
