This is the most complete compilation of poems from an important Renaissance writer. This is an entirely new and comprehensive edition of the "Complete Poems of Henry Howard, Earl of Surrey", edited by William McGaw. It offers an extensive introduction, a definitive text, four appendices, concise but thorough notes, select bibliography, annotated bibliography of sources, and a glossary. McGaw fills in a gap that scholars and critics have laments for the past two decades and compliments a full-scale biography published by William A. Sessions in 1999. Surrey was a preeminent courtier under King Henry VIII, and was regarded by his contemporaries as one of the two major Tudor poets (along with Sir Thomas Wyatt). He transformed the Petrarchan sonnet into its English form, created English blank verse, and he wrote the first personal elegy in English upon Wyatt's death. No manuscript or early printed edition contains all of his work. This edition has been enhanced by more recent research and by access to more sources. Notable in this edition are the inclusion of two poems generally regarded as doubtful; the addition of two previously unknown or overlooked psalms, among other things.
