Rezensionen

(Reference Reviews , 2011)Tom Corns's book is the first of its kind to attempt torelate literature to the history of its time not merely in broadabstract terms but in specific detail. He discusses individualworks in such a way that they reoccupy their rightful place amongthe social and political events of their time. And so they comefreshly alive. This is not the only story that could be told aboutliterature, but it is one not to be ignored.
"This "handbook" is, perhaps, more"textbook" than "reference book", but it iswell done and would be a useful resource for undergraduatelibraries."

Alastair Fowler, Regius Professor of Rhetoric and EnglishLiterature, University of Edinburgh

Thomas Corns has written an exceptionally fine and remarkablyambitious history of seventeenth-century English literary culture.One of its great virtues is that this history begins with the lateElizabethan period and extends its account to the very end of theseventeenth century, thereby crossing and reexamining traditionalboundaries of literary historical periodisation. Corns deftlyilluminates the distinctive aesthetic achievements ofseventeenth-century English writers, while precisely situatingtheir works in their social, political, and religious contexts, aswell as in relation to the other arts. Students and scholars alikewill find this new, wide-ranging literary history of the periodinvaluable. It is an outstanding achievement. David Loewenstein,University of Wisconsin-Madison
