British Identities and English Renaissance Literature

£19.99

Product description

This paperback book is in excellent condition.  The cover is in excellent condition, with minimal shelf wear.  Internally a couple of pages have a slight crease at the very edge, but otherwise the pages are in excellent condition - clean, tight and umarked, with very little sign of use.

Though British history and identity in the early modern period are intensively researched areas, the role of literature in the construction of 'Britishness' is under-examined. English history of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries often overlooks the contribution of Ireland, Scotland and Wales to the formation of the British state. Historians describe 'Britain' as a multiple kingdom, with a long history of conflict. In this 2002 volume, a team of leading Renaissance literary critics read a broad range of texts from the period, including plays of Shakespeare, in light of British history. Prominent historians respond to the issues raised by the volume. This collection opened up a different kind of literary history and has pressing relevance for discussions of 'Britishness'.
