About this book

Literature and Politics in the 1620s argues that literature during this decade was inextricably linked to politics, whether oppositional or authoritarian. A wide range of texts are analyzed, from Shakespeare's First Folio to Middleton's A Game At Chess, from romances and poetry to sermons, tracts and newsbooks.

Reviews

“Paul Salzman, in Literature and Politics in the 1620s: ‘Whisper’d Counsells,’ examines the development of self-conscious political reading in the 1620s in a more standard account of literature and politics. … The book is an excellent resource for scholars and graduate students. It gives a comprehensive view of literature of the 1620s.” (Studies in English Literature 1500-1900, Vol. 56, 2016)

"...the book succeeds in its goal of 'offer[ing] a clear sense of what the decade's overall literary production was like' (p. 8) and demonstrates the richness and variety of that production. It provides a useful introduction to this fascinating decade and engaging overview of many of its key and less familiar texts." Review of English Studies
