Twenty-nine poets' writing from the ascension of James I in 1603 to the Restoration of the monarchy in 1660 are included in this edition. A time of great political and social unrest, this period produced some of the greatest poetry in English. This volume includes the major poets - John Donne, Ben Jonson, George Herbert, John Milton and Andrew Marvell - as well as the major women writers of the era. The criticism features essays by contemporary poets and biographers, among them Ben Jonson and Samuel Johnson, as well as recent examinations of the period and its poetry by T.S. Eliot, W.H. Auden and Eavan Boland, among others.
