Abstract

Reviews response seems to emerge. The claim that som e sort of historical investigation is being conducted simply cannot b e assented to. A s a reviewer in the Fall 1989 issue of Emblematica (4:2) remarks of another recent work of Renaissance scholarship, a lot of material is covered to reach very unremarkable conclusions and, whdst the critic ma y 'claim his survey 'enriches' our reading of the poe m ... I fad to see ho w it provides anything beyond what could be gleaned from the most a-historical 'Ne w Critical' reading that attended to the metaphoric structures of the poem'. It is evident that the literary texts to which this methodology is being currendy appUed simply will not yield the sort of material for which the investigators are searching. Where , unexpectedly, a passage ma y be tortured into relinquishing a relatively apposite conclusion, w e find ourselves in an amusing logical fork. A s the Shakespeare Studies reviewer of Greenblatt's Renaissance self-fashioning justifiably asked, 'Is there any value in redefining such commo n wisdom in its Renaissance terms', whe n w e are merely conducted to 'a conclusion that could be readily duplicated in any period
