The Cambridge companion to early modern women's writing by Laura Lunger Knoppers( Book )
21 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 687 libraries worldwide
"Featuring the most frequently taught female writers and texts of the early modern period, this Companion introduces the reader to the range, complexity, historical importance, and aesthetic merit of women's writing in Britain from 1500-1700. Presenting key textual, historical, and methodological information, the volume exemplifies new and diverse approaches to the study of women's writing. The book is clearly divided into three sections, covering: how women learnt to write and how their work was circulated or published; how and what women wrote in the places and spaces in which they lived, worked, and worshipped; and the different kinds of writing women produced, from poetry and fiction to letters, diaries, and political prose. This structure makes the volume readily adaptable to course usage. The Companion is enhanced by an introduction that lays out crucial framework and critical issues, and by chronologies that situate women's writings alongside political and cultural events"--Provided by publisher
Historicizing Milton : spectacle, power, and poetry in Restoration England by Laura Lunger Knoppers( Book )
9 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 598 libraries worldwide
Although Milton's three major poems, Paradise Lost, Paradise Regained, and Samson Agonistes, appeared well into the Restoration era, they have long been regarded as belonging philosophically to the earlier seventeenth century. The canonical view is of Milton as a relic in the Restoration - either belated humanist or belated Puritan. Addressing this long-standing anomaly of literary history, Historicizing Milton shows how Milton's major poems respond specifically and powerfully to royalist spectacles of the 1660s and 1670s, spectacles that were intended as displays of divinely approved monarchical power. Laura Lunger Knoppers traces such public spectacles as the execution of the regicides, the exhumation of Cromwell, the punishment of fifth monarchists, and the coronation triumph of Charles II. Drawing on a range of sources, including letters, diaries, newspaper accounts, sermons, royal proclamations, and parliamentary accounts, Knoppers reconstructs the discourses that interpreted and contested spectacles of power and punishment. Milton's poems are part of this oppositional discourse, Knoppers argues, and his revisions of such key terms as martyrdom, treason, joy, glory, and conquest boldly and defiantly challenge the spectacles by which the monarchy constituted and conveyed its power. Questioning the nature of earthly spectacle altogether, Milton rewrites display as inner witness before God alone. His radically iconoclastic art creates a mode of antispectacle, not only exposing but also redefining and appropriating the spectacles of state

11 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 563 libraries worldwide

Constructing Cromwell : ceremony, portrait, and print, 1645-1661 by Laura Lunger Knoppers( Book )
11 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and Italian and held by 390 libraries worldwide
"Constructing Cromwell traces the complex and shifting popular images of Oliver Cromwell from his first appearance as a public figure in the mid-1640s through the period of his power to his death and eventual disinterment after the restoration of the monarchy. The meaning and impact of this enigmatic figure have long been debated in the context of mid-seventeenth-century crisis, but contemporary representations of Cromwell have largely been neglected. Cromwellian print, Laura Knoppers argues, transformed the courtly forms of Caroline ceremony, portraiture, and panegyric and in turn complicated and altered the cultural forms available to Charles II. The book draws on extensive archival research, including manuscript sources, startling print ephemera, and visual artifacts. Placing canonical authors such as Milton, Marvell, Waller, and Dryden alongside such neglected writers as George Wither and Payne Fisher, Knoppers demonstrates how literary texts both respond and contribute to political and cultural change."--Jacket

Puritanism and its discontents ( Book )
7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 366 libraries worldwide
"This volume works to restore both a radical edge and a new specificity to the much-debated definitions of Puritans and Puritanism. Ranging from the 1622 election of a new master at Emmanuel College, Cambridge, to Oliver Cromwell's self-fashioning, to uses of the Turk in anti-Puritan polemic, to Anne Hutchinson and the Antinomian crisis, the ten essays offer a detailed account of the intersection of religion, politics, and culture in England and America in the seventeenth century and beyond. Each essay shows how a dynamic and shifting Puritanism is constructed in and through conflict, and how a radical impulse to discontent is part of Puritan self-identity

The Oxford handbook of literature and the English Revolution ( Book )
6 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 217 libraries worldwide
"This Handbook offers a comprehensive introduction and thirty-seven new essays by an international team of literary critics and historians on the writings generated by the tumultuous events of mid-seventeenth-century England. Unprecedented events-civil war, regicide, the abolition of monarchy, proscription of episcopacy, constitutional experiment, and finally the return of monarchy-led to an unprecedented outpouring of texts, including new and transformed literary genres and techniques. The Handbook provides up-to-date scholarship on current issues as well as historical information, textual analysis, and bibliographical tools to help readers understand and appreciate the bold and indeed revolutionary character of writing in mid-seventeenth-century England. The volume is innovative in its attention to the literary and aesthetic aspects of a wide range of political and religious writing, as well as in its demonstration of how literary texts register the political pressures of their time. Opening with essential contextual chapters on religion, politics, society, and culture, the largely chronological subsequent chapters analyse particular voices, texts, and genres as they respond to revolutionary events. Attention is given to aesthetic qualities, as well as to bold political and religious ideas, in such writers as James Harrington, Marchamont Nedham, Thomas Hobbes, Gerrard Winstanley, John Lilburne, and Abiezer Coppe. At the same time, the revolutionary political context sheds new light on such well-known literary writers as John Milton, Andrew Marvell, Robert Herrick, Henry Vaughan, William Davenant, John Dryden, Lucy Hutchinson, Margaret Cavendish, and John Bunyan. Overall, the volume provides an indispensable guide to the innovative and exciting texts of the English Revolution and reevaluates its long-term cultural impact."--Publisher's website
Politicizing domesticity from Henrietta Maria to Milton's Eve by Laura Lunger Knoppers( Book )
5 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 206 libraries worldwide
"On the evidence of novels, poetry and paintings, the Victorians were obsessed with the English Revolution. Imagining the British past as prototype of an idealized present, the Victorian cult of domesticity drew upon the image of the Caroline royal family. Frederick Goodall's 1853 An Episode in the Happier Days of Charles I (fig. 1) depicts Charles I, Henrietta Maria and their young children feeding geese, while on a royal shallop barge moving slowly down the Thames. A characteristically van Dyckian Charles I, sporting long hair, brushed-up moustache and pointed beard, dressed in a black silk doublet with falling ruff collar, and wearing his lesser George medallion, stands over his seated wife and daughter. Henrietta Maria, her hair stylishly dressed in side ringlets, wears a deep rose satin gown with an elaborate collar and large, puff sleeves; holding a King Charles spaniel in her lap, the queen attends closely to her rosy and plump-cheeked young daughter, who is feeding two large swans"--
