schema:reviewBody""This is the first full-scale history of early modern English literature in nearly a century. It offers new perspectives on English literature produced in Britain between the Reformation and the Restoration. While providing the general coverage and specific information expected of a major history, its twenty-six chapters address recent methodological and interpretive developments in English literary studies. While England is the principal focus, literary production in Scotland, Ireland and Wales is treated, as are other subjects less frequently examined, including women's writings and the literature of the English Reformation and Revolution. This innovatively designed history is an essential resource for specialists and students."--Jacket."
