The Sixteenth Century: Skelton Through Hooker. Goldentree Bibliographies in Language and Literature.
Lievsay, John L., Comp.
Intended as a guide to scholarship in 16th-century English literature and culture, this selective listing provides coverage of the major works and topics, with emphasis on work published in the 20th century. Omitted are unpublished dissertations and most literary histories, bibliographies of bibliography, short notes and explications, and older biographical studies superseded by later work. Only token representation is given to Scottish writers, and ignored are works which are primarily dramatic or writers who were most active in the 17th century. Entries are under the following headings: bibliographies, background studies, series, general collections, period literary histories, special topics, "Festschrift" volumes, anthologies, Bibles, prayer books, primers, anonymous and pseudonymous authors and works, translations, and individual authors. Entries for the 102 individual writers are arranged by bibliographical and reference works, collected editions, selections, individual works, and biography, criticism, articles, and notes. An index of scholars represented is provided. (LH)
