About this book

Writing Early Modern London  explores how urban community in London was experienced, imagined and translated into textual form. Ranging from previously unstudied manuscripts to major works by Middleton, Stow and Whitney, it examines how memory became a key cultural battleground as rites of community were appropriated in creative ways.

About the authors

Andrew Gordon is a Lecturer in Renaissance Literature at the University of Aberdeen, UK. He is the author of numerous articles and chapters on early modern London, manuscript culture and correspondence. He has edited (with Bernhard Klein) Literature, Mapping and the Politics of Space in Early Modern Britain (2001), and (with Thomas Rist) The Arts of Remembrance in Early Modern Britain (2013).

Reviews

"...whereas such volumes often offer little more than a collection of essays on a narrow range of canonical or proto-canonical literary works, this book both promises and delivers a great deal more, and should be read by all historians of early modern London or urban culture between the Reformation and the Civil War... This is truly a model of new historicism in action." Jonathan Barry, Urban History
