The Poetics of Angling in Early Modern England, Hardback Book


Myra E. Wright takes ecocritical studies on an interdisciplinary turn toward the water with her new research monograph, The Poetics of Angling in Early Modern England.

Identifying the lively presence of both literal and metaphorical images of sportfishing in all kinds of early modern writing, this book identifies a deep sympathy between the art of angling and the art of writing, and examines the centrality of fish in early modern conceptions of humanity.
