Renaissance Perspectives in Literature and the Visual Arts

Roston, Murray (Fellow, 1985-86)

Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press, 1987

From the publisher's description:

Roston demonstrates that what emerges is not a fixed or monolithic pattern for each generation but a dynamic series of responses to shared challenges. The book relates leading English writers and literary modes to contemporary developments in architecture, painting, and sculpture, exploring by a close reading of the texts and the artistic works the insights such comparison offers.
