Distinguished critic and scholar Louis L. Martz refreshingly addresses some of the central concerns in current studies of English poetry from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, exploring the context of religious controversy within which this poetry developed and the relationship of poetry to the visual arts.
Louis L. Martz is Sterling Professor of English Emeritus at Yale University and Adjunct Professor of English at Georgetown University. He is author or editor of many books, most recently Milton: Poet of Exile.
"It is not unusual for a seasoned critic to put together essays previously published over a period of time (in this case two decades). What is unique is the consistent voice and purpose sustained by Martz here and over a distinguished career. . . . This volume should be of particular interest to students, both in its fascinating subject matter and the attractive illustrations that accompany the text."--Choice
