Subject: Re: English Renaissance Literature Course Outlines
The very large and useful *The Renaissance in England* anthology of
Hyder Rollins and Herschel Baker (eds.) has apparently come back into
print recently (D.C. Heath, 1954), probably because the publishers
noticed that not much else was available. It's plenty for a non-
dramatic Renaissance course, especially if supplemented by a few
complete works and a good library reserve collection, though at first
it appears quite fragmentary. I usually assign reports on major
pieces that interest me (and conceivably a few students) as well as
works that run counter to those included. Sorry, but I don't have a
syllabus handy, and probably wouldn't know how to send it electronically
if I did. Hope this helps.
