The Poetics of Melancholy in Early Modern England explores how attitudes toward, and explanations of, human emotions change in England during the late sixteenth and early seventeenth century. By emphasising the shared concerns of the 'non-literary' and 'literary' texts produced by figures such as Edmund Spenser, John Donne, Robert Burton, and John Milton, Douglas Trevor asserts that quintessentially 'scholarly' practices such as glossing texts and appending sidenotes shape the methods by which these same writers come to analyse their own moods.
