Early Modern English Poetry features twenty-eight original essays written especially for this volume by important international scholars on the major poems of the English Renaissance. The typical essay in this volume was written with two goals in mind: to provide readers with a distinctive and illuminating analysis of a key early modern work; and to introduce students to an important topic of early modern culture. The volume also offers groundbreaking scholarship on subjects ranging from the intervention of English verse, Petrarchism, pastoral, elegy, and satire, to women's religious verse, the politics of town, the place of homoeroticism, and Cavalier poetry. Early Modern English Poetry serves as an accessible introduction both to a key range of canonical poetic works in English and to historical and cultural topics that help illuminate those works.

An exceptionally useful collection of introductory essays ... most of the contributors accomplish their brief with a seemingly effortless clarity and elegance...In a period when students are often nervous of reading poetry and particularly frightened by early modern texts, this volume may make a significant contribution to introducing a new generation to the extraordinary poetic riches of the period. ( Elizabeth Heale, Modern Language Review)
offers important cultural background and a widening of the usual scope of reference whilst delivering, in many cases, fresh analyses of poets familiar to the Early modern canon. ( Elizabeth Clarke, The Review of English Studies)
