The Seventeenth Century : Intellectual and Cultural Context of English Literature, 1603-1700 Paperback

Part of the Longman Literature in English Series series

Description

The seventeenth century was a period of immense turmoil.

This book explores the methods by which a distinctive iconography was created for each Stuart king, describes the cultural life of the Civil War period and the Cromwellian Protectorate, and analyses the impact of the antiquarian movement which constructed a new sense of national identity.

Through this detailed and fascinating discussion of seventeenth-century society, Graham Parry provides a clear insight into the many forces operating on the literature of the period.
