Transported styles in Shakespeare and Milton by Harold E Toliver( Book )

7 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beginning with the distinctions between rhetoric and poetry, Harold Toliver examines the interplay of functional speech, assigned the task of moving plots, and poetry's sublime transport to hypothetical or second worlds and their implicit criticism of the worldly possible. The dramatist who works toward a conservative reinstatement of social order is sometimes at odds with the poetic visionary. Juxtaposing Shakespeare and Milton on that matter helps situate them within their respective Elizabethan and Puritan outlooks. - Jacket flap
George Herbert's Christian narrative by Harold E Toliver( Book )

6 editions published in 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a growing perception that George Herbert deserves to be placed more in the mainstream of literary history and that romanticism and modernism are not exclusively post-Milton phenomena. As one of the centers of new-historicist interest, The Temple has of late been seated in the context of church controversies, Reformation thought, and the politics of the 1620s. Yet previous studies have been reluctant to widen their focus to locate Herbert within the intellectual movements of the earlier seventeenth century, apart from doctrinal issues and the social idiom that he often uses. Harold Toliver explores the implications for Herbert's lyrics of the Christian narrative -- the secular labyrinth and the parables' guiding rope, the conflicts between heart and mind, the agonies of postponement, intervals and abstract totality, the visible church and its calendar, the concept of an ending, and Herbert's adaptation of the sonnet form. - Jacket flap
