This volume provides the first comprehensive treatment of the issues that helped shape the way writers thought about literature from the late Middle Ages to the late seventeenth century. These issues touched almost every facet of Western intellectual endeavor, as well as the historical, cultural, social, scientific, and technological contexts in which that activity evolved. The sixty-one chapters by a team of internationally respected scholars are supported by specialized bibliographies for guidance in further studies of the individual topics.ContentsPart I.
