Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0195628004, Paperback)

This volume contains a very representative selection from the works of five leading seventeenth-century British poets: John Donne, George Herbert, Richard Crashaw, Henry Vaughan and Andrew Marvell. The general introduction reviews scholarship on the period since the beginning of the twentieth century and suggests a provocative and unusual way of approaching the works of these poets. The bibliography is full and up-to-date. The work of each poet is preceded by an introduction to his life and work, and the poems have been thoroughly annotated. The editor's notes and commentaries display high standards of scholarship and a knowledge of the latest critical thinking in the field. The book is likely to prove more useful--to the beginner as well as to the more advanced student--than any comparable anthology of seventeenth-century verse.
