Latin Treatises on Poetry from Renaissance England.

Binns, J. W., ed. Latin Treatises on Poetry from Renaissance England.

(The Library of Renaissance Humanism.) Signal Mountain, TN: Summertown Texts, 1999. xii + 224 pp. bibl, index. n.p. ISBN: 1-89300-903-5.

Three formal Latin treatises on poetry, two Elizabethan and one Jacobean, valuable "for the insight which they provide into the position of poetry at the universities in Renaissance England," are translated and presented together in one modern edition. Original punctuation is retained in the facing page translations, but spelling is modernized, paragraphs are added to the two unparagraphed treatises, and original margin notes are transferred to footnotes. Each treatise is preceded by an introduction by the editor/translator.
