The Arts of Remembrance in Early Modern England offers a compelling view of the processes of memorialisation and of remembering, ranging from ecclesiastical practice to literary production, visual culture, and the stage. The collection brings together established scholars and exciting new voices, to consider the wide-ranging effects of the Reformation, and the recurring presence of the dead.'-- Helen Smith, Reader in Renaissance Literature, University of York
The early modern period inherited and refashioned a culture of remembrance deeply-ingrained in the customs of Christian community. The Arts of Remembrance in Early Modern England maps the new terrain of remembrance in the post-Reformation and charts the creative re-fashioning of remembrance in material, textual and performance culture.
