This is the first comprehensive collection of English Renaissance literary criticism to appear for nearly a century. Brian Vickers has brought together a wide-ranging selection of texts, some well-known (such as Sir Philip Sidney's Apology for Poetry, the most brilliant critical essay of the whole Renaissance, here given complete), some little-known (Dudley North's account of Metaphysical poetry), and one being printed for the first time (John Ford's elegy on John Fletcher).

The Times Literary Supplement - Alastair Fowler

The index is admirably efficient as regards rhetorical figures and other brief entries....this excellent anthology can be recommended with very few reservations. Let us hope it will be followed by a second volume continuing the selection further into the seventeenth century.
