The Burley Manuscript
Peter Redford
Manchester University Press

After an introduction discussing Renaissance letter-writing and the Burley letters in particular, letters are taken in groups of similar kind, such as Donne’s correspondence with Wotton, Goodere and others, his love letters to Anne More, the Symmachus translations, and so on. Extensive commentary and notes are provided for each group and, in the case of the translations, notes of deviations from Symmachus’s original. The concluding section discusses Renaissance letter-writing in general, citing the writers John Hoskyns and the slightly later James Howell, and showing how the letters recorded in Burley display the qualities they commended.

Keywords:   Letters, Donne, Wotton, Goodere, Anne More, Symmachus, Hoskyns, Howell
