about

The historical construction of authorship is of enormous interest to scholars and critics. Yet an important aspect of the historical emergence of the author--the literary biography or "life of the poet"--has received scant attention. In The Emergence of the English Author, Kevin Pask offers the first full-scale history of the cultural construction of literary authority in early modern England, and studies the early life-narratives of major English poets Chaucer, Sidney, Spenser, Donne and Milton.
1. England's 'olde Ennius': Geoffrey Chaucer; 2. The 'mannes state' of Philip Sidney; 3. Patronage, friendship, and poetic tradition: Sidney and Spenser; 4. 'Libertine in wit': Dr Donne in literary culture; 5. Milton's daughters.
