WILLIAM EMPSON saw himself as a rescuer of John Donne from the misrepresentations of neo- Christian apologetics in literary critical form - from latterday worshippers of that religion's odious God the Father. Both Donne and Empson are fanciful, and Empson's readers have to be prepared to keep track of the flight-paths of his fancy, and to put on their space-suits for some of his leaps and ellipses. He hugely deserves the indulgence he is currently accorded, and it would be grim to witness a reversion to the old practice of deploring his stretches of the imagination and his jokes.

This volume gathers some of William Empson's most passionate and controversial essays and includes previously inaccessible pieces on influential Renaissance writers and scientists. Introduced by leading Empson scholar John Haffenden, this is a book for anyone interested in the Renaissance, the history of science, and the history of literary criticism.
