"Resistant Structures manages to be both stunning and sensible. . . .The book is an erudite, sensitive, and theoretically provocative experiment in political criticism, at once radical and rigorous, which will be of lasting value to all students of English Renaissance literature."—Debora Shuger, author of The Renaissance Bible "These essays have a cumulative and exemplary force, which is due to Strier's knowlege, his intelligence, the clarity of his writing, and the honesty of his procedures."—Paul Alpers, author of Singer of the Eclogues: A Study of Virgilian Pastoral

Having identified the literary origins of the Faustus legend in the late sixteenth-century German Faust Book and its English translation, this book argues that the Faustus typology emerged as a vehicle for discussing morality and beliefs. This study examines a broad spectrum of transformations of the thematic core of the legend, concentrating on Marlowe's play, Milton's and Fontenelle's responses to seventeenth-century science, Mountfort's farcical Faustus play and early eighteenth-century harlequinades.

"This volume is composed of thirteen essays by an international group of acclaimed Renaissance scholars on the presence of Anne More Donne in the poetry of her husband. In his epitaph for his wife upon her death in 1617, John Donne called her "Faeminae lectissimae, dilectissimaeque" - a woman "most choice" and "most beloved and loving": but these Latin terms of endearment also figured her as a woman both "well-read" and "very well-read." This book aims to endorse and to explore that view of her that is espoused by the poet in his epitaph through readings of his "readings" of her presence and absence as central subjects of Donne's own presentations of himself, his world, and his God."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
