Family Politics in Early Modern Literature, Hardback Book

Family Politics in Early Modern Literature Hardback

Edited by Hannah Crawforth, Sarah Lewis

Part of the Early Modern Literature in History series


This book considers the ways that family relationships (parental, marital, sibling or other) mimic, and stand in for, political ones in the Early Modern period, and vice versa.

Bringing together leading international scholars in literary-historical fields to produce scholarship informed by the perspective of contemporary politics, the volume examines the ways in which the family defines itself in transformative moments of potential crisis - birth and death, maturation, marriage - moments when the family is negotiating its position within and through broader cultural frameworks, and when, as a result, family 'politics' become most apparent.
