Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0333449118, Hardcover)

England from Elizabeth I to Charles I was a divided and perpetually anxious society that had to face up to external invasion in the Spanish Armada, to the threat of internal subversion in the gunpowder plot and ultimately to the prospect of Civil War. Yet the controversialists of the new print culture found much else that gave cause for concern: the failure to bring about a full reformation of the English Church; the growth of London as a centre of entertainment and pleasure; the profligate patronage of the court. Tempests, earthquakes, disastrous harvests, the plague - all these were taken as an unmistakable sign that the world was entering its last days. In this work, David Morse shows how pervasive was this pessimistic mood and how powerfully it affected English writing from Shakespeare to Milton. Other books by David Morse include "Motown and the Arrival of Black Music", "Perspectives on Romanticism", "Romanticism" and "American Romanticism" (in two volumes).
