Industry Reviews

"Wonderful selections! Very thorough. I like this text best of the ones I have seen."--Paul Sheneman, Belhaven College "A rich selection--full of further examples of practically every point I wish to nudge my students toward. I have used the book often since it first appeared."--William P. Keen, Washington and Jefferson College "I have ordered this book as the text for my course [on] the Renaissance World. I don't think it has a viable competition: Norton's 'The Golden Hind' is not as good and costs twice as much in hardback, and it doesn't have Spenser's Mutability Cantos. I realize this has been around for a while, but keep it in print."--Harry Keyishian, Farleigh Dickinson University "Very wide range of coverage."--Joyce G. MacDonald, University of Kentucky "Comprehensive....The best anthology I know of."--Jim Kerbaugh, Illinois College "One of the few remaining comprehensive anthologies of English Rennaissance literature available at a reasonable price. The editorial matter is sound and authoritative; the selections are both wide-ranging and well chosen; and the pictures and illustrations are delightful."--John B. Brooks, University of Wisconsin, Oshkosh "Very fine anthology.... The reprints are wonderful."-- Michael L. Storex, College of Notre Dame, Baltimore "This book amply replaces the old Rollins text for Renaissance classes. It is full enough that it can be used without supplements except for drama."--Richard B. Weir, The King's College
