This eBook from the Gutenberg Project consists of approximately 509 pages of information about Pastoral Poetry and Pastoral Drama.

(iii) Spanish (Chap.  I, sect. vii).  George Ticknor. History of Spanish Literature.  Sixth American edition. 3 vols.  Cambridge (Mass.), 1888.

J. Fitzmaurice-Kelly, A History of Spanish Literature. London, 1898.

H. A. Rennert. The Spanish Pastoral Romances. Publications of the Modern Language Association of America, vol. vii (3). pp. 1-119, (1892).  An elaborate study, which, however, I only discovered when my work was in the press.

Francesco Torraca. Gl’ imitatori stranieri di Jacopo Sannazaro.  Seconda edizione accresciuta. Roma, 1882.  A study which I have found very useful both in relation to Spanish and French pastoralism.

(iv) French (Chap.  I, sect. viii).  L. Petit de Julleville. Histoire de la Langue et de la Litterature francaise. 8 vols.  Paris, 1896-1899.

(v) English Poetry (Chap.  II).  J. G. Underhill. Spanish Literature in the England of the Tudors. New York (Columbia University Studies in Literature), 1899.  A valuable study, particularly in connexion with Montemayor, with useful bibliography.

A. W. Pollard. The Castell of Labour, translated from the French of Pierre Gringore by Alexander Barclay. Edinburgh (Roxburghe Club), 1905.  Whatever can be said for Barclay as a poet is admirably said in the Introduction to this work.

F. W. Moorman. William, Browne.  His Britannia’s Pastorals and the pastoral poetry of the Elizabethan age. Strassburg (Quellen und Forschungen), 1897.

Walter Raleigh. The English Novel.  Second edition. London, 1895.  To this brilliant study, and in particular to the treatment of Euphuism and Arcadianism, I am deeply indebted.

J. J. Jusserand. The English Novel in the Time of Shakespeare, translated from the French by Elisabeth Lee.  Revised and enlarged by the author. London, 1890.

K. Brunhuber. Sir Philip Sidneys Arcadia und ihre Nachlaeufer. Nuernberg, 1903.  Though not always accurate, the first part, dealing chiefly with the sources, possesses original value; the same cannot be said of the second, dealing with the dramatizations, which is superficial.

(vi) Italian Drama (Chap.  III).  J. L. Klein. Geschichte des Dramas.  Vol.  V. Das italienische Drama.  Zweiter Band. Leipzig, 1867.

Wilhelm Creizenach. Geschichte des neueren Dramas.  Zweiter Band.  Renaissance und Reformation.  Erster Theil. Halle, 1901.

Vittorio Rossi. Battista Guarini ed il Pastor Fido.  Studio biografico-critico con documenti inediti. Torino, 1886.

Giosue Carducci. Su l’Aminta di T. Tassa, saggi tre.  Con una pastorale inedita di G. B. Giraldi Cinthio. Firenze, 1899.
