King James I and the religious culture of England by James Doelman( )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and held by 794 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although James I was more interested in religious matters than in any other aspect of English culture at the time, this topic has received little attention in recent literary scholarship, which this book aims to redress. It studies his influence, both direct and indirect, on aspects of religious life, and particularly his hitherto neglected writings. Beginning with an examination of the roots of his religious thinking in the Protestant understanding of biblical monarchy, and his own experiences as king of Scotland, it moves to his reign in England, bringing together literary, religious and political history to consider such subjects as the poetic response to his accession, prophetic poetry at court, and the politics of conversion. Going beyond the usual critical attention to the short devotional lyric, the study draws on such forms as religious narrative, philosophical or theological verse, works of religious satire and controversy, liturgical verse and sermons, by both well and lesser-known writers. James' own attempt to provide a new English versification of the Psalms is examined in particular depth."--Jacket
The epigram in England, 1590-1640 by James Doelman( Book )

8 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While among the most common of Renaissance genres, the epigram has been largely neglected by scholars and critics: James Doelman's book is the first major study on the Renaissance English epigram since 1947. It combines thorough description of the genre's history and conventions with consideration of the rootedness of individual epigrams within specific social, political and religious contexts. The book explores questions of libel, censorship and patronage associated with the genre, and includes chapters on the sub-genres of the religious epigram, political epigram and mock epitaph. It balances discussion of canonical figures such as Ben Jonson and Sir John Harington with a wide range of lesser known poets, drawing on both manuscript and print sources. In its breadth, The epigram in England serves as a foundational introduction to the genre for students, and through its detailed case studies it offers rich analysis for advanced scholars
