Violent Masculinities : Male Aggression in Early Modern Texts and Culture Hardback

Edited by Jennifer Feather, Catherine E. Thomas

Description

During the early modern period in England, social expectations for men came under extreme pressure - the armed knight went into decline and humanism appeared.

Here, original essays analyze a wide-range of violent acts in literature and culture, from civic violence to chivalric combat to brawls and battles.
