The literary overview will concentrate on the development of drama and poetry; prose writings will be considered only very selectively; Marlowe and Shakespeare will be discussed in some detail. The overview of the poetry will focus on selected poems by Spenser, Sidney, Shakespeare, Ben Jonson and on Donne and the "Metaphysical Poets".
