Silver poets of the sixteenth century by Gerald Bullett( Book )

24 editions published between 1947 and 2009 in English and held by 1,211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

English poetry, after the splendid summer sun of Chaucer had set, entered early into a rather wintry phase, in which a stirring of folk poetry and Skelton's odd 'flytings and vituperations' were almost the only relief. There were poets, of course, who looked back at the splendour, but their study windows were not opened until the great spring morning of the early sixteenth century when England became a land of song. It was a welcome renewal -- of language, new fancies, new conceits -- a looking into the face of nature. New learning, new culture were abroad; freshness touched the sonnets of Wyatt, Sidney, Howard and Releigh as they penned and composed this excitingly new literary form. In this garden of a world, the poets turned to love as their theme and played upon it with virtuosity -- from lines of great artistry and verbal felicity to poems of deep and true feeling

Edward II; [a play] by Christopher Marlowe( Book )

2 editions published between 1850 and 1865 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Depicting with shocking openness the sexual and political violence of its central characters' fates, Edward the Second broke new dramatic ground in English theatre. The play charts the tragic rise and fall of the medieval English monarch Edward the Second, his favourite Piers Gaveston, and their ambitious opponents Queen Isabella and Mortimer Jr., and is an important cultural, as well as dramatic, document of the early modern period. This modernized and fully annotated Broadview Edition is prefaced by a critical but student-oriented introduction and followed by ample appendix material, including extended selections from Marlowe's historical sources, texts bearing on the play's complex sexual and political dynamics, and excerpts from contemporary poet Michael Drayton's epic rendition of Edward the Second's reign."--Page 4 of cover
