Description

In Dr. Jacob's book he is rightly interested in winning converts to the neoclassical strain in early modern English literature - as well as to the classical moment it sought to give rebirth. Both of these eras are obvious turning points in Western literature and life. He also briefly summarizes the history of Senecan influence in Tudor-Stuart drama, and yet has space and time to provide pages of excerpts from ancient historical and philosophical writers whose works influenced the three English dramas.
