About the Authors
  • 1999 marks the 350th anniversary of the execution of Charles I, and this volume deals with the crisis the execution provoked in the representation of the monarchy. It looks at both sympathetic and hostile representations of Charles I, and addresses not only the period of mid-century crisis but also the earlier years of his reign and the afterlife of his royal image. It will appeal not only to literary scholars but also to historians, art historians and musicologists.

    • 350th anniversary of execution of Charles I in January 1999
    • Volume editor is well known - edited Cambridge Companion to English Poetry: Donne to Marvell for Cambridge University Press
    • Interdisciplinary appeal to art history and history as well as English literature

    "Readers as well as politicians had a vested interest in this ownership of the royal image...What emerges then from this fine collection of essays is a sense of the instability of the royal image." Jrnl of English and Gemanic Philology, Jan 2002
