Stoicism, Politics and Literature in the Age of Milton: War and Peace Reconciled

Передня обкладинка
Cambridge University Press, 28 серп. 1998 р. - 174 стор.
This book offers a fresh examination of key seventeenth-century writers in the context of their common interest in the republican, libertarian, and oppositional potential of the philosophical tradition of Stoicism. Through subtly nuanced close readings of Marvell, Katherine Philips, and Milton, Andrew Shifflett shows that these writers had more in common than previous philosophical, political, and aesthetic categories have allowed, both in their keen Stoic interests and in the struggle to wrest this tradition from absolutist interpretations.
