Chapter One of Manuscript verse collectors and the politics of anti-courtly love poetry, by Joshua Eckhardt.
The book analyzes the distinctive contribution to literary history of early-seventeenth-century hand-written English poetry anthologies. Compiled by manuscript verse collectors, these anthologies preserved a number of pieces by major authors of the English Renaissance, yet they tended to surround them with unprintable verses on sex and politics.
