The wit of seventeenth-century poetry( Book )

8 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As the twelve original essays collected in this volume demonstrate, to study the wit of seventeenth-century poetry is necessarily to address concerns at the very heart of the period's shifting literary culture. It is a topic that raises persistent questions of thematics and authorial intent, even as it interrogates a wide spectrum of cultural practices. These essays by some of the most renowned scholars in seventeenth-century studies illuminate important authors and engage issues of politics and religion, of secular and sacred love, of literary theory and poetic technique, of gender relations and historical consciousness, of literary history and social change, as well as larger concerns of literary production and smaller ones of local effects."--Jacket

Representing women in Renaissance England( Book )

7 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focusing on women as writers and as subjects of Renaissance nondramatic literature, the fifteen original essays in this volume share the belief that hierarchically ordered male-female relations influence nearly all aspects of human social relations, including those that are apparently not gendered at all. Some of the essays participate in the exciting process of recovering and evaluating women writers whose works are only now entering the canon of English literature, while others examine gender issues in male-authored canonical texts. The contributors to Representing Women in Renaissance England, some of whom are the most distinguished scholars currently active in the field of Renaissance studies, offer correctives to oversimplified views of women in Renaissance literature, frequently questioning received ideas about patriarchy and about women's responses to their varied positions within a society whose hierarchies were configured according to multiple considerations. In their varied approaches and distinct conclusions, these essays contribute significantly to a fuller understanding of the representation of women - by both male and female writers - in the Renaissance. In doing so, they illuminate particular texts and specific writers and call attention to recurrent themes. Perhaps more fundamental, however, they reveal the extent to which basic gender issues are at the very heart of Renaissance literature

Renaissance discourses of desire( Book )

6 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Love and sex are preeminent subjects of Renaissance literature; however, attitudes toward these topics were hardly uniform. The discourses of desire from this period embrace works as dissimilar as sonnets on frustrated love and libertine invitations to lust. Writers both idealized and demystified sex, alternately equating it with religious transcendence or exposing it as a mere bodily itch. The fifteen essays in this volume clarify the sexual beliefs and prohibitions of the Renaissance period and examine the manifestations of those ideas in literature. Renaissance Discourses of Desire confronts important questions about the relationship of sexuality and textuality in the period using a variety of critical methods and ideological presuppositions. Some of the essays focus on the intertwining of political and sexual discourse, the difference between men and women as desiring subjects, and the erotics of criticism. The representation of homoerotics and homosexuality is discussed as is the impact of economic and social ideologies on love poetry and sexual expression. Among the texts explored are works by Shakespeare, Spenser, Donne, Carew, Herrick, Suckling, Burton, Katherine Philips, Aphra Behn, and Milton. With their varied approaches, these essays illustrate the richness of the topic and its susceptibility to a number of critical techniques. Illuminating important authors and significant texts, the essays collected here contribute to a fuller understanding of the complexities and range of seventeenth-century discourses of desire, while also helping to chart the outlines of the period's sexual ideologies and anxieties
The English civil wars in the literary imagination( Book )

12 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The English civil wars loom large in seventeenth-century history and literature. This period, which culminated in the execution of a king, the dismantling of the Established Church, the inauguration of a commonwealth, and the assumption of rule by a lord protector, was one of profound change and disequilibrium. Focusing on writers as major as Milton, Marvell, Herrick, and Vaughan, and as misunderstood as Fane, Overton, and the poet Eliza, the fifteen essays in this collection discuss not only the representation of the civil wars but also the ways in which the civil wars were anticipated, refigured, and refracted in the century's literary imagination
