Edited and introduced by noted seventeenth-century scholar Jonathan Post, it enlists the analytic and verbal power of some of todays most celebrated poets to illuminate from the inside out a number of the greatest lyric poets writing in English during the sixteenth and seventeenth century.

Written by people who spend much of their time thinking in verse and about verse, these original essays herald the return of the early modern lyric as crucial to understanding the present moment of poetry in the United States. This work provides fascinating insights into what todays poets find of special interest in their forebears.

In addition, these discussions shed light on the contributors own poetry and offer compelling clues to how the poetry of the past continues to inform that of the present.
