Milton and the tangles of Neaera's hair : the making of the 1645 Poems by Stella Purce Revard( )

7 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 2,000 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Milton's 1645 Poems is a double volume, containing not only Milton's major English lyric poems - the Nativity ode, "L'Allegro" and "Il Penseroso," "Lycidas," and the mask Comusbut also his youthful elegiac poetry and his mature Latin poems, which were written in the late 1630s after his major English lyrics had already been composed. In Milton and the Tangles of Neaera's Hair, Stella P. Revard traces the development of the 1645 Poems as a double book and investigates the debt of both English and Latin poetry to the neo-Latin and vernacular traditions of the Continental Renaissance. Too often critics simply ignore the presence of the Latin poems in the 1645 volume. Revard claims that to do so is to miss Milton's implicit intention to balance English and Latin works. She shows that the Latin poems complement the English works and reveal even more than the English poems the personal, political, and cultural crises that Milton was undergoing in the late 1630s, supplementing what the earlier English poems and particularly "Lycidas" tell us about Milton's shift of direction as poet. The Latin poems also announce Milton's intention to write an epic in his native tongue rather than in Latin. Yet even as Milton renounced Latin as the language for poetical expression, he resolved to carry into his English poems the ideals of the Continental humanistic tradition. Milton and the Tangles of Neaera's Hair provides a balanced view of Milton's first book of poetry and also looks at poetry from the Continental Renaissance tradition hitherto neglected. The reader is better able to understand how this tradition shaped both the English and the Latin poetry of Milton's 1645 Poems, as well as how Milton became the poet who went on to write the greatest epic in the English language, Paradise Lost

Pindar and the Renaissance hymn-ode, 1450-1700 by Stella Purce Revard( Book )

7 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines Pindar and his influence in a broad way by evaluating the impact of his poetry in religious, cultural, and literary contexts. Revard studies the literature that resulted from Pindaric imitation and probes the reason for the great popularity of Pindar and his odes on the continent and in England in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The study will be of interest to classicists, scholars in comparative literature, and students of Italian, French, and English literature." --
Politics, poetics, and the Pindaric ode : 1450-1700 by Stella Purce Revard( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and French and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Politics, poetics, and the Pindaric ode: 1450-1700' is the companion volume to the author's earlier study, 'Pindar and the Renaissance hymn-ode.' Its particular focus is on the development of the political ode in Italy and France in the late fifteenth and sixteenth centuries and its dissemination throughout continental Europe and finally to England in the seventeenth century. It also considers how the funeral and familiar pindaric and the city ode developed as ancillary to the political ode. It includes discussion of odes by early Italian experimenters, Ronsard and his followers, and major English poets -- Milton, Marvell, Cowley, Dryden, Behn, Drayton, Jonson, and Spenser." --
