London Dispossessed : Literature and Social Space in the Early Modern City Hardback
by John Twyning
Part of the Language, Discourse, Society series
In the Early Modern period, massive emigration, along with political contention between the Court and the City, reshaped London's social topography and human landscape.
This book examines the spaces and identities which characterized the changing metropolis.
From excursions into institutions like Bedlam, Bridewell, and the Theatre, as well as exploring the less formal places and practices of London, such as prostitution, the suburbs, and the fashion parades at St Paul's Walk, a new way of seeing the city becomes open to us.
