We develop an analytical approach to study the fundamentals of the resonant light emission of plasmonic crystals composed of lattices of plasmonic nanoparticles fed by coherent dipole emitters. Our theoretical approach leads to simple analytical expressions that elucidate the resonant mechanisms responsible for emission enhancement. We demonstrate that the emission can be efficiently controlled with localized plasmons, lattice surface modes, and Rayleigh anomalies, and discuss the interactions between these different contributions.
