Penguin Book of Renaissance Verse by David Norbrook

Book Description

The era between the accession of Henry VIII and the crisis of the English republic in 1659 formed one of the most fertile epochs in world literature. This anthology offers a broad selection of its poetry, and includes a wide range of works by the great poets of the age - notably Sir Philip Sidney, Edmund Sepnser, John Donne, William Shakespeare and John Milton. Poems by less well-known writers also feature prominently - among them significant female poets such as Lady Mary Wroth and Katherine Philips. Compelling and exhilarating, this landmark collection illuminates a time of astonishing innovation, imagination and diversity.

Lucretius and the Early Modern by David Norbrook Lucretius and the Early Modern, Hardback (October 2015)

This collection of essays presents a series of case studies which demonstrates the sophisticated ways in which different readers across the world have approached and interpreted Lucretius' remarkable poem De rerum natura over the centuries, from Lucretius' contemporary audience to the European Enlightenment.

Works of Lucy Hutchinson by David Norbrook Works of Lucy Hutchinson, Paperback (December 2011)

Volume I in a four-volume edition of the writings of Lucy Hutchinson, which have never before been published in a collected edition. Hutchinson's translation of Lucretius's classical epic De rerum natura is provided alongside the Latin text she used. The detailed commentary and full introduction illuminate the translation and its contexts.

Poetry and Politics in the English Renaissance by David Norbrook Poetry and Politics in the English Renaissance, Hardback (September 2002)

This title establishes the radical currents of thought shaping Renaissance poetry: civic humanism and apocalyptic Protestantism. The author shows how Elizabethan poets like Sidney and Spenser, often seen as conservative monarchists, responded powerfully if sometimes ambivalently to radical ideas.

Order and Disorder by David Norbrook Order and Disorder, Hardback (January 2001)

"Order and Disorder", the first epic poem by an Englishwoman, has never before been available in its entirety. David Norbrook has attributed the work to the republican, Lucy Hutchinson. In this volume, he provides a wealth of editorial matter, along with the full version of "Order and Disorder".
