'Who the Devil Taught Thee So Much Italian?': Italian Language Learning and Literary Imitation in Early Modern England

Cover
Manchester University Press, 2005 - 224 Seiten
This book offers a comprehensive account of the methods and practice of learning modern languages, particularly Italian, in late sixteenth- and early seventeenth-century England. It is the first study to suggest that there is a fundamental connection between these language-learning habits and the techniques for both reading and imitating Italian materials employed by a range of poets and dramatists, such as Daniel, Drummond, Marston and Shakespeare, in the same period.
