The Poetry of Praise

The Poetry of Praise by J. A. Burrow
English | 8 May 2008 | ISBN: 0521886937 | 210 Pages | PDF | 5 MB

One of the chief functions of poetry in Antiquity, the Middle Ages and the Renaissance was to praise gods, people and things. Heroes and kings were glorified in many varieties of praise, and the arts of encomium and panegyric were codified by classical rhetoricians and later by writers on poetry.
J. A. Burrow's study spans over two thousand years, from Pindar to Christopher Logue, but its main concern is with the English poetry of the Middle Ages, a period when praise poetry flourished.
