Combining a close study of Monteverdi's secular works with recent research on late Renaissance history, Gary Tomlinson places the composer's creative career in its broad cultural context and illuminates the state of Italian music, poetry, and ideology in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.

Gary Tomlinson is Professor of Music at the University of Pennsylvania and a 1988 MacArthur Fellow.From Library Journal:
Working at a time of great conflict between the old scholastic and the new humanist traditions, Monteverdi was subject to influences not only musical but cultural, as represented by changing poetic and ideological thought (especially of the divergent Petrachan and Marinist schools). Tomlinson shows how these influences contributed to the composer's musical and philosophical development. Books on Monteverdi abound, but none from this vantage point. While scholarly, the work is fluent, attractive, and intelligible in style and contains both useful footnotes and an extensive bibliography. Illuminated capitals at the start of each chapter add to the pleasure of handling this beautifully presented book. Recommended for music libraries. Philippa Kiraly, Cleveland, Ohio
