The Cambridge History of Early Modern English Literature narrates the history of English literature written in Britain between the Reformation and the Restoration. Although England is a principal focus, literary production in Scotland and Ireland also figures in the narrative, with occasional notice of Wales and Ireland in literary representations written in English. This new twenty-six chapter history by an international team of distinguished scholars will prove essential reading for students and scholars of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century English literature, culture, and history.
