Politics, Poetics, and the Pindaric Ode: 1450-1700 is the companion volume to the earlier study, Pindar and the Renaissance Hymn-Ode. Its particular focus is on the development of the political ode in Italy and France in the late fifteenth and sixteenth centuries and its dissemination throughout continental Europe and finally to England in the seventeenth century. It also considers how the funeral and familiar pindaric and the city ode developed as ancillary to the political ode. It include discussion of odes by early Italian experimenters, Ronsard and his followers, and major English poets — Milton, Marvell, Cowley, Dryden, Behn, Drayton, Jonson, and Spenser.
