(Literature in Context Series) 
Renaissance Views
Manchester University Press, Manchester 1978

By judicious selection of texts by Ficino, Pico, Erasmus, Luther, Gelli, James I and Milton, translated where necessary, this volume aims to give the student of Renaissance English literature a better understanding of the key ideas in philosophy, politics and theology in the period 1450-1650. The substantial introduction and detailed annotation are designed to draw the student's attention to parallels with English literary texts. Areas covered include Neoplatonism, humanism, the monarchy, the Reformation and contemporary attitudes to women. At a time when English Renaissance studies are becoming closely involved with background material, this selection should prove an invaluable reference work for the student.
