About the Author

E. M. W. Tillyard (1889-1962) was a fellow, and later became master at Jesus College, Cambridge University. He has best known for his argument that Elizabethan literature did not represent humanism, but instead a theological bond that allowed the medieval view of the world order to continue. Some of his works include Shakespeare’s Early Comedies, The Epic Strain in the English Novel, and The Miltonic Setting: Past and Present.

Provides needed insight into the Elizabethan Era. A must if you want a true understanding of Shakespeare or Milton. It's not a fun or exciting read. Pretty dry yet useful stuff.
