520 8  What can I do? To what degree do we control our own 
       desires, actions, and fate - or not? These questions haunt
       us, and have done so, in various forms, for thousands of 
       years. Timothy Rosendale explores the problem of human 
       will and action relative to the Divine - which Luther 
       himself identified as the central issue of the Reformation
       - and its manifestations in English literary texts from 
       1580-1670. After an introduction which outlines the 
       broader issues from Sophocles and the Stoics to twentieth-
       century philosophy, the opening chapter traces the 
       theological history of the agency problem from the New 
       Testament to the seventeenth century. The following 
       chapters address particular aspects of volition and 
       salvation (will, action, struggle, and blame) in the 
       writings of Marlowe, Kyd, Shakespeare, Ford, Herbert, 
       Donne, and Milton, who tackle these problems with an 
       urgency and depth that resonate with parallel concerns
