This subject is about the first golden age of English literature: the 17th century, from Shakespeare to Milton. It makes sense of a wealth of material by following across the period changing attitudes to the heroic ethos, on the one hand, and to humanistic values, on the other. It watches as feudalism gives way to the bourgeois and faith is modified by science. Above all it sees the Renaissance ideal come up against limits which that ideal itself discovered.
