Abstract
A favourable review of Anne Ferry's book "The Art of Naming" (Chicago and London: University of Chicago Press, 1988). Daalder states that this book makes a valuable contribution to the study of sixteenth-century literature; to say that the book is valuable is not, however, to imply that it has no shortcomings. Nonetheless, despite some drawbacks, Daalder considers Ferry's book to be something of a minor masterpiece.
