Summary
  • "The English republic of the mid-seventeenth century is traditionally viewed as an aberration in political and literary history. In this history of republican culture, David Norbrook argues that the English republican imagination had deep roots in humanist literary culture, and was far from being crushed by the Restoration of 1660. Writing the English Republic will be of compelling interest to historians as well as literary scholars."--Jacket
