The purpose of this dissertation is to propound and interpret propositions and resolve dilemmas connected with editing, modernizing and concordancing Surrey's verse. It provides three distinct sections, each with a specific scholarly and critical focus, all interdependent, but contributing organically to the dissertation's intellectual core: viz. to bring to life comprehensively the verse, language and significance of a poet whose influence continues to be felt in the major English literary forms he invented and in the metrical regularity and fluency he attained.
