Enabling Engagements

Book - 2002
Rate this:
An insightful reading of Edmund Spenser, demonstrating his poetic and political stance through his engagements with patrons. Enabling Engagements contributes to current critical debates regarding early modern subjectivity and early modern cultural capital. In stressing the boldness of Edmund Spenser's poetics of patronage, Judith Owens shows that Elizabethans could and did exercise agency within a wide range of institutions. By consistently challenging assumptions of courtly hegemony in early modern society, Owens suggests a new appraisal of the processes of cultural commodification.
