Renaissance Pastoral and Its English Developments
This book, the first critical history of English Renaissance pastoral since 1906, combines factual history with critical analyses of major authors and areas, including several continental pastoralists and Renaissance readings of Virgil's Eclogues. It explores the extent, variety, and
complexity of Renaissance pastoral and the forces that helped shape it, discusses language and literary convention, and examines the political and topical implications of pastoral as well as significant details of publication and patronage.
