Product description

Review

immensely learned, closely argued, and beautifully written ... offers innumerable rewards for the patient reader who appreciates Womersley's subtlety of argumentation as well as the generous number of bold, bracing claims to be found in these pages ... [it] will be an influential book for years to come. It is an indispensable study for all who are concerned with how literary and historical texts negotiated the perilous waters of confessional conflict in early-modern England. (Jonathan Baldo, The Review of English Studies)

Womersley is a reliable and clear-sighted guide. (Diarmaid MacCulloch, Times Literary Supplement)

Womersley combines impeccable historical scholarship with critical acumen in this original and challenging book (Paul Dean, English Studies)

About the Author

David Womersley was educated at Trinity College, Cambridge, and is currently the Thomas Warton Professor of English Literature at the University of Oxford, and a Fellow of St Catherine's College. His publications include The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire (Penguin, 1994) and Gibbon and the Watchmen of the Holy City: the Historian and his Reputation, 1776-1815 (Oxford, 2002). He has edited Edmund Burke's Pre-Revolutionary Writings (Penguin, 1998), Restoration Drama: An Anthology (Blackwell, 2000), Cultures of Whiggism (University of Delaware Press, 2005), Literary Milieux (University of Delaware Press, 2008), and Boswell's Life of Johnson (Penguin, 2008). His current projects include a biography of Gibbon (for Yale University Press), and monographs provisionally entitled Literary Whiggism 1680-1730 and English Literature and Colonial Tension, 1765-88.
