Originally published in 1936, this book provides a concise discussion of Sir Walter Raleigh's connection to the intellectual environment of his time. It analyses Raleigh's position as the focal point for 'The School of Night', a speculated group of literary, philosophical and scientific figures including prominent individuals such as Christopher Marlowe, George Chapman and Thomas Herriot. Whilst there is no firm evidence for the existence of a clearly defined 'School', this remains a thoughtful and rigorous study. It contextualises the development of new ideas during the time, and reveals the close connection between literature and theoretical developments in other areas. A fascinating book, it will be of value to anyone with an interest in the cultural atmosphere of the English Renaissance.
