Censorship and Conflict in Seventeenth-Century England : The Subtle Art of Division
Examines censorship in seventeenth-century England. Focuses on authors whose concerns and commitments were equally political and aesthetic, including William Prynne, Richard Lovelace, John Milton, Andrew Marvell, John Dryden, and Jonathan Swift. Analyzes both the mechanics of early modern censorship and the poetics that the licensing system produced.
