Poetry and Politics in the English Renaissance

Revised Edition

David Norbrook

  • A revised edition of Norbrook's groundbreaking book of 1984 (Routledge), with new introduction, supplementary material, and updated footnotes.
  • An exceptionally important contribution to interdisciplinary studies of early modern culture, historical and literary.
  • Praised by eminent historians and literary critics, including Christopher Hill, Blair Worden, Katherine Eisaman Maus, and Frank Kermode - who wrote of the book's 'decisive effect on our thinking about the poetry of the English Renaissance' (TLS)
  • An invaluable basis for the study of poets such as Sidney, Spenser, Fulke Greville, Jonson, and Milton, in the context of their times.
