    Essays on book history, manuscripts and reading during a period of considerable change. The production, transmission, and reception of texts from England and beyond during the late medieval and early renaissance periods are the focus of this volume. The text is from a collection of poems in ‘The Phoenix Nest,’ which has been extracted from the book ‘The poem of Sir Walter Ralegh.’ The Early Modern English poem is fourteen lines long and is quintessentially a self-pitiful venture to remind the poet himself of his lifetime’s dashed reputation and respect as a result of his profound mistake.
