Included are new selections from Saint Benedict and Tasso, as well as a medieval satire on the land of Cockayne. "The Humanist Circle", a carefully chosen selection of letters, includes another important contribution by Erasmus.

"Criticism" includes five new thought-provoking essays by Alistair Fox, Edward L. Surtz, G. R. Elton, Northrop Frye, and Robert M. Adams.

Skinners Walden Twoplus a selection from Edward Bellamys once futuristic but now almost contemporary Looking Backward, which may be compared and contrasted with Mores masterpiece.
