About the Authors
  • This collection of fifteen essays by leading scholars examines the extraordinary diversity and richness of the writing produced in response to, and as part of, the upheaval in the religious, political and cultural life of the nation that constituted the English Revolution. Essays explore the course of events, intellectual trends and the publishing industry, the work of canonical figures such as Milton, Marvell, Bunyan and Clarendon, women's writing and fictional and non fictional prose. A full chronology, detailed guides to further reading and glossary of historical terms are included.

    • Established area in which students need help: at the core of English political and literary history
    • A top-class line-up of contributors
    • Chronology, guide to further reading, glossary of historical terms

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Collectively, these essays represent revisionist history at its best, because the innovative views their authors expound challenge previous assumptions and point to future lines of inquiry...Very highly recommended for upper-division undergraduates through faculty." CHOICE

    "The standard of these essyas is impeccable, and they fit together to yield a satisfying whole." Renaissance Quarterly

    "This book ably demonstrates the range of literary forms during the mid-seventeenth century, from the ephemeral to the canonical, and from the published to the unpublished." Seventeenth Century News

    "All in all, this is a useful volume." Albion
