Writing the English Republic: Poetry, Rhetoric and Politics, 1627-1660
Cambridge University Press, 28. jan. 2000 - 509 sider
‘[Norbrook’s] marvellously original, densely researched study of the English republican imagination is an attempt to retrieve forgotten figures like the regicide Henry Marten, as well as to extend our understanding of the works of Milton and Marvell.’ Tom Paulin, The Independent ‘[A] fine and important book ... I suspect that Writing the English Republic will have as large and lasting an impact as any previous or readily foreseeable study of the relationship between literature and politics in seventeenth-century England. [Norbrook] writes in an attractively exploratory spirit which resists dogmatism and the sealing of argument.’ Blair Worden,Times Literary Supplement‘The case for the republican conscience resounds most eloquently in the impressive coda to this book ... but the pay-off for historians stems above all from Norbrook’s decision to produce a theme-driven argument instead of a general survey. This has led him to dig deep into the textual remains of the Revolution, rather than content himself with the familiar surface structures.’ London Review of Books
