GENERAL INTRODUCTION
In introducing this Guide to English Literature, it is as well to remember that this is the age of the Digest and the Headline, of the Comic and the Tabloid, of the Bestseller and the Month's Masterpiece: an age when a 'deep-seated spiritual vulgarity... lies at the heart of our civilization' in the words of the novelist, L. H. Myers.
THE SOCIAL SETTING
L. G. Salingar
Lecturer in English, University of Cambridge
The Nation and the Drama, 1558-1625
Europe in the sixteenth century was dominated by kings. In the Middle ages, culture and to a large extent the forms of government had been moulded by the Church of Rome.
