Full text not currently available from Enlighten.
This book is an analysis of the sonnet in the English Renaissance. It especially traces the relations between Shakespeare's sonnets and the ways in which other writers use the form. It looks at how the poetry fits into the historical situation at the time, with regard to images of the family and of women. Its exploration of these issues is informed by much recent work in critical theory, which it tries to make as accessible as possible.
