Abstract

The English writer of the Sixteenth Century--particularly the translator--worked with a new sense of national vitality and purpose, but he was dependent on, and to a certain degree, subservient to, the sense of form and literary history seen in the ancient world, in modern Italy, and occasionally in France. But by the beginning of the Eighteenth Century, England had become so apt a pupil that it felt itself more the inheritor than the learner.
