The Emergence of Quaker Writing: Dissenting Literature in Seventeenth-century England
Thomas N. Corns, David Loewenstein
Psychology Press, 1995 - Aufsatzsammlung - 148 pages
Among the radical sects which flourished during the tumultuous years of the English Revolution, the early Quakers were particularly aware of the power of the written word to promote their prophetic visions'and unorthodox beliefs.
This collection of new essays by literary scholars and historians looks at the diversity of seventeenth-century Quaker writing, examining its rhetoric, its polemical strategies, its purposeful use of the print medium, and the heroism and vehemence of its world vision.
