Summary
This valuable study illuminates the idea of nobility as display, as public performance, in Renaissance and seventeenth-century literature and society. Through detailed readings of major authors, David Posner examines the tensions between literary or imaginative representations of 'nobility', and the increasingly problematic historical position of the noble classes themselves
