    schema:description "Interrogating the Whiggish orientation that has continued to view the English Renaissance through a haze of Anglo-American triumphalism, 'English Renaissance drama and the specter of Spain' recovers the voices of key Spanish participants and the 'Hispanized' Catholic resistance, revealing how England and Spain continued to draw upon shared traditions and cultural resources, even during the moments of their most storied confrontation." -- from the dustjacket."@en ;

    schema:description "Imagining an early modern public sphere in which dramatists cross pens with proto-imperialists, Protestant polemicists, recusant apologists, and a Machiavellian network of propagandists that included high government officials as well as journeyman printers, Eric Griffin uncovers the rhetorical strategies through which the Hispanophobic perspectives that shaped the so-called Black Legend of Spanish Cruelty were written into English cultural memory. At the same time, he demonstrates that the English were as ready to invoke Spain in the spirit of envious emulation as to demonize the Spanish other as an ethnic agent of intolerance and oppression."@en ;
