Lyric Poetry of the Elizabethan Age By Norman Ault Originally published in London 1928. The purpose of this book is to present the lyric poetry of the Elizabethan Age as a living literary movement, the evolution of which can best be seen, not in the piecemeal study of individual writers, but only when their collective work is viewed chronologically and as an organic whole. Consequently the contents are arranged year by year according to the dates at which each poem first became known. The collection ranges from 1533 to 1620. Contents Include: Text and notes (505 pages) Abbreviations Index of Authors Index of First Lines Index of Subjects Notes etc. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Home Farm Books are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
