This book is about description and image in Renaissance poetry, but focuses not on descriptions that present a vivid image to the reader's mind but on those that seem to avoid doing so. Against the ancient and still active tradition that poetry is painting in words, it argues that poetry is most poetic when its goals are not visual.
