9780888395474: Falconry in Literature: The Symbolism of Falconry in English Literature From Chaucer to Marvell

Through falconry imagery the author takes the reader through a wide range of many poets and dramatists of the Late Mediaeval and Renaissance areas. The symbolism and many references on this sport in literature gives the reader a good incite into falconry of the past and as it is practised in the present. The author has broken new ground and re-discovered references in literature known to an older generation of falconry enthusiasts. This book will be of practical use to students and aficionados of the English literature in clarifying some of the confusion that falconry can cause in Mediaeval and Renaissance texts. An interesting read of untold wealth of cultural and social history.
