Writing the English Republic: Poetry, Rhetoric and Politics, 1627-1660
Cambridge University Press, 28. jan. 2000 - 509 strani
This magisterial new history of seventeenth-century republican political culture sets key texts by Marvell and Milton in a richly detailed context, showing how writers re-imagined English political and literary culture without kingship. The book draws on extensive archival research, bringing to light exciting and neglected manuscript and printed sources. Offering a bold new narrative of the whole period, and a timely reminder that England has a republican as well as royalist heritage, it will be of compelling interest to historians as well as literary scholars.
