This book offers a fresh examination of key seventeenth-century writers--notably Andrew Marvell, Katherine Philips and John Milton--in the context of their common interest in the republican, libertarian and oppositional potential of the philosophical tradition of Stoicism. As a study of the rhetorical and philosophical bases of English neostoicism, this book sketches an important new map of political discourse in the civil war period.

"Stoicism, Politics, and Literature in the Age of Milton is a strong addition to seventeenth-century studies. This relatively slim volume offers a fresh understanding of Stoicism that has the potential to illuminate many more literary texts than are actually discussed here." Modern Philology
