Among these exiles were some of the most important authors in the Anglo-American canon. Christopher D'Addario explores how early modern authors reacted to and wrote about the experience of exile in relation both to their lost homeland and to the new communities they created for themselves. He analyzes the writings of first-generation New England Puritans, the Royalists in France during the English Civil War, and the " interior exiles " of John Milton and John Dryden."
