The Burley Manuscript
Peter Redford
Manchester University Press

The introduction shows why Burley is so important among manuscript miscellanies, having over 200 verse entries, about three-quarters of them in English, and the English ones spread among many authors (including Donne, Spenser and Jonson), with more than a quarter being anonymous. The English verse is then divided into genres (lyric, satire, epigram, elegy, verse-letter and so on) and extensive commentary and notes, including reasons for authorial attributions, are provided.

Keywords:   Verse, Donne, Spenser, Jonson, Anonymous, Verse genres
