"Collectively, these essays represent revisionist history at its best, because the innovative views their authors expound challenge previous assumptions and point to future lines of inquiry...Very highly recommended for upper-division undergraduates through faculty." CHOICE "The standard of these essyas is impeccable, and they fit together to yield a satisfying whole." Renaissance Quarterly "This book ably demonstrates the range of literary forms during the mid-seventeenth century, from the ephemeral to the canonical, and from the published to the unpublished." Seventeenth Century News "All in all, this is a useful volume." Albion
