English Renaissance Poetry: A Collection of Shorter Poems from Skelton to Jonson Reviews
My then thesis advisor taught this class. High expectations. He had done his reading at Oxford when the 16th & 17th century compilations were being worked on, was a friend of Robert Pinsky and a classical pianist to boot. Equally adept at teaching 19th century literature and culture. No pressure or anything... The love he showed to poems is like nothing I have ever seen before or since. To this day gorgeous lines of poetry roam through my thoughts thanks to Henry.
it is so helpfull for us ..
This is a lovely anthology of poetry that I was little familiar with; I knew a little "They flee from me, that sometime did me seek", some of Shakespeare's sonnets, and some John Donne. I had heard some other names, but not George Gascoigne, George Turberville, or Fulke Greville. I decided to read it through, and had a lot of trouble at the beginning understanding what was said; with a lot of rereading the poems started to speak to me. This is a large and long anthology, but I ended thinking there was not a bad poem in it, and many that touched me.
