It provides an account of the main classical and Christian ideas, outlining their meaning, their origins and their transmission to the Renaissance; illustrates the ways in which Renaissance poetry drew on classical and Christian ideas; contains extracts from key classical and Christian texts and relates these to the extracts of the English poems which draw on them; and includes suggestions for further reading, and an invaluable bibliographical appendix. In this new edition, the bibliographies have been updated to take account of important recent publications in philosophy, religion and Renaissance studies."--Jacket.
