Appeared in Choice on 1986-11:
Leon Howard died in 1982, leaving unfinished a book-length study of English and American Puritanism. The present volume contains the completed portion (about one quarter of the projected whole) plus five essays dealing with Puritanism and with uses of Ramist logic in Puritanism, Milton, and Shakespeare. Howard's treatment of Milton and Shakespeare extends our knowledge of the impact of Petrus Ramus (151572) and his ``logic'' upon the literature of early modern England. His coverage of Puritanism is elementary, unoriginal, and too little informed by the newest scholarship. The volume concludes with a checklist of the author's publications and with a general index.-T.D. Bozeman, University of Iowa
