RE: John Cox's comments on Rolin and Baker.
 
I'd be interested in knowing if there is an anthology more concerned with
marginalized figures than the Rollins and Baker volume. It certainly provides
more prose (and more prose fiction, my special interest) than anything else I
know of, but it disregards women's texts. Hollander and Kermode's _The
Literature of Renaissance England_ seems skimpier in its selections and also
ignores works by women. On the other hand, it is in print and available in a
paperback edition. I think Rollins and Baker is still available, but does
anyone know what it costs these days?

Another two books of interest which I used in a similar class are
THE PORTABLE ELIZABETHAN READER, which has a good deal of prose
as well as poetry, edited by Hiram Haydn [Viking 1946/1969]; and
FOUR STAGES OF RENAISSANCE STYLE: Transformations in Art & literature
by Wylie Sypher, has many examples of relating literature to the other
arts in connection with the Renaissance in general. [Doubleday\Anchor
1955].
