London, J. Cape [] (OCoLC) There's lots of excellent poetry from the seventeenth century, and a lot of it has got into this book. But I think the editors could have done a lot better. One expected but still irritating omission is the great dramatic blank verse of the seventeenth century/5(3).

The seventeenth century was a period of remarkable achievement in the field of English poetry: it was the age of Shakespeare, Donne, Marvell, Jonson, Drayton, Herbert, Dryden, and Rochester among others.

The seventeenth century saw some of the great achievements in the English language. Milton wrote Paradise Lost, Donne composed his Metaphysical verse, and Shakespeare his late Romances, not to mention the work of Dryden, Marvell, Jonson, and many others.4/5(39).

However, the fact that the book is slightly biased towards political history should not too surprising, for the book is a general history, but also because the seventeenth century was one of statecraft (e.g., Jean-Baptiste Colbert under Louis XIV in France, the Great Elector Frederick William of Brandenburg-Prussia, Peter the Great of Russia /5(3).

Book Description. Provides a comprehensive and entertaining account of the vitality and variety of achievement in seventeenth-century English poetry. Revised and up-dated throughout, Dr Parfitt has added new material on poets as varied as Marvell and Traherne.

This paper looks again at this verse, little of which deserves the title 'poetry', considers reasons for its sudden appearance, and attempts a preliminary enquiry regarding the incidence of verse-writing by Quakers during the rest of the seventeenth century.3 Proclamations of the Quaker message, Quakers believed, were directly given them by the.

Seventeenth century poetry is what is known as metaphysical poetry. Metaphysical poetry can be seen with the frequent use of paradoxes, the juxtaposition of complexity and subtlety of thought, among other devices.

William Shakespeare is plausibly the most common poet of this era, and arguably of all time. The overarching premise of the book rests on the little-used term concinnity, referring to harmony or cohesion that arises from multiplicity.

The notion is explored most explicitly in chapter 2, "The concinnity of the arts and the church music controversy," where McColley notes, for example, the role played by chapel windows, music, and liturgy together in inviting meditation (58).

The seventeenth century was a period of profound change in the history of music. In this volume Lorenzo Bianconi considers the radical developments of the century as long-lived musical traditions died out and others were created in response to new social functions. This period saw, for example, the flowering of the polyphonic madrigal and its subsequent decline in favour of a new concertato.

Born in Bickley, Kent, the son of architect C. Quennell and Marjorie Quennell, he was educated at Berkhamsted Grammar School and at Balliol College, still at school some of his poems were selected by Richard Hughes for the anthology Public School Verse, which brought him to the attention of writers such as Edith Sitwell.

In he published his first book, Masques. The publication of The Broadview Anthology of Seventeenth-Century Verse and Prose is a literary event; this comprehensive volume is the first anthology of the period to reflect the breadth of seventeenth-century studies in recent decades.

Over one hundred writers are included, from John Chamberlain at the beginning of the century to Elisabeth Singer Rowe at. Anthologies of eighteenth-century verse have tended to confirm traditional notions of the period as one of untroubled elegance, urbanity, and decorum.

Offering over poems and extracts by more than poets, The New Oxford Book of Eighteenth-Century Verse presents a truer picture of this age as a much less stable and decorous time/5.

seventeenth-century poetic figure. Before illustrating the interaction of theological beliefs and poetic practice from poems celebrating Christ's coming, it is necessary to present these liturgical materials.

The Book of Common Prayer takes as the text for Epiphany those verses in the second chapter of Matthew which describe the joourney. This book reappraises the work of early-seventeenth-century collectors of English Renaissance poetry in manuscript.

The verse miscellanies, or poetry anthologies, of these collectors have long attracted the attention of literary editors looking for texts by individual, major authors, and they have more recently interested historians for their poems on affairs of state, called verse libels.
