Harry Berger, Jr., is one of the most influential Renaissance critics of our time. These selections of his essays, spanning thirty years of a prodigious output, gather some of his most seminal work in permanent form, and show his development from new-critical idealism to historicism, from formalism to cultural poetics. Underlying the whole, however, is an ongoing project to synthesize problems of literature, art, and philosophy; to develop a model of mind and imagination, and a theory of cultural change.

From the Inside Flap:

"Harry Berger is a brilliant, tenacious, indefatigable close reader of Renaissance texts. . . . In fact, his remarkably restless and capacious intelligence illuminates virtually the whole range of Renaissance cultural artifacts and then turns upon itself to illuminate its own theoretical assumptions and critical procedures. . . . The essays in this book are essential reading for students of Renaissance culture."—Stephen Greenblatt, University of California, Berkeley

"This collection of Harry Berger's essays is a major and long-awaited event for students of Renaissance literature and art. Readers in other fields will also be interested in following an exceptionally innovative mind as it moves across many disciplinary boundaries."—Margaret W. Ferguson, University of Colorado, Boulder
