Two recent books disagree about how death was met in the English Renaissance In ROOTED SORROW: DYING IN EARLY MODERN ENGLAND, Bettie Anne Doebler argues that the English Renaissance handled death better than we do, teaching acceptance of death and providing proper consolation of the bereaved.

In THE REST IS SILENCE: DEATH AS ANNIHILATION IN THE ENGLISH RENAISSANCE, he claims that the early modern period in England experienced a "mortality crisis," as the Reformation challenged people's efforts to achieve their own salvation

First published in 1960. Shakespeare's development is treated accordingly as a growth in moral vision.

"Rooted Sorrow" is a literary and cultural study of death and dying through selected images, events, and words that interact in expressive forms between 1590 and 1631. In the first half the book sets up the prismatic method by which the author examines several of Shakespeare's plays in terms of the survival of the late medieval ars moriendi tradition. The devotional tradition of the ars embodies an oft-repeated ritual of preparation for dying, with especial emphasis on the temptation to despair. The second half of the book develops a poetics of comfort for mourning survivors that reveals both the necessity of lament and the faith in immortality by which culture arrived at acceptance. Ironically the harsh anger of grief becomes a crucial station on the way to the acceptance of death.The book as a whole is a chronicle of the intelligent struggle of those persons in England who faced a world inhabited by a pervasive sense of death and its triumphs. It is ultimately the courage of the struggle with its affirmation of the power of life over death that Milton brings out in his great allegory of that image. His narrative transforms the violent figures of Sin and Death that dominate the hellish vision of the early section of the poem into the later figure of Death as release. Doebler shows that in early texts (as in life) the tension between those two images is never fully resolved.
