Railing, Reviling, and Invective in English Literary Culture, 1588-1617
The Anti-poetics of Theater and PrinteBook - 2012
This is the first full-length study to consider railing plays and pamphlets as a literary mode of articulation that vehemently counters dominant literary discourse of the late Elizabethan and early Jacobean period. Where previous scholarship has examined railing texts in isolation from each other, this book changes the way that we look at the English literary landscape by considering railing as a dominant and coherent literary movement.
