Abstract

Rémy Belleau and Thomas Nashe produced their entries to the impotency poem tradition in the second half of the sixteenth century. Through a reading that pays attention to the intertextual significance of works which use the impotency motif to respond to antecedent texts, Belleau and Nashe’s texts can be usefully compared in order to consider why these poets responded to the impotency poem tradition within the context of their own time.
