9780199231973: Writing Under Tyranny: English Literature and the Henrician Reformation

Writing Under Tyranny: English Literature and the Henrician Reformation spans the boundaries between literary studies and history. It looks at the impact of tyrannical government on the work of poets, playwrights, and prose writers of the early English Renaissance. It shows the profound effects that political oppression had on the literary production of the years from 1528 to 1547, and how English writers in turn strove to mitigate, redirect, and finally resist that oppression. The result was the destruction of a number of forms that had dominated the literary production of late-medieval England, but also the creation of new forms that were to dominate the writing of the following centuries. Paradoxically, the tyranny of Henry VIII gave birth to many modes of writing now seen to be characteristic of the English literary Renaissance.

About the Author :

Greg Walker is a Professor of Early-Modern Literature and Culture, University of Leicester.

Review :


"Walker's strength is that he understands and engages intimately with the culture of a generation schooled in the rhetorical tradition.... Walker is a most acute critic of the literature of an age when most published writers were active politicians and most politicians were writers."--Patrick Collinson, London Review of Books


"Walker's readings invest the literature of the early sixteenth century with a complex political urgency that is more often associated with Elizabethan texts. This thoroughly researched and well-written book asks us to rethink the standard narrative of sixteenth-century literary history ... For scholars in the fields of literature and history, Writing under Tyranny is destined to become a classic."--Journal of British Studies


"A new book by Greg Walker...is a major event."--Reviews in History


"Walker gives voice to a fascinating dialogue between literature and politics in a compelling work.... This is an actively engaging book, required reading for anyone interested in the relation between literature and politics, and a welcome addition to the ranks of intellectual history."--Alessandra Petrina, Renaissance Quarterly


"A monumental achievement that furthers our understanding of an area that Walker has done much to illuminate over the years. The careful and scrupulous analysis of a whole range of texts that deserve to be better known, and more meticulously read, has resulted in a serious, scholarly and, in places, profound work, well written throughout."--Andrew Hadfield, Times Literary Supplement
