About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1914, this book examines the mutual influence that England and Germany had on each other in the seventeenth century, the period in which German influence on England, which had been overwhelming, begins to recede and England's influence on Germany becomes much more profound. Waterhouse examines a range of literature, from theology and poetry to satire, in order to demonstrate how the relationship two countries waxed, waned and waxed again. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in European literary history and the relationship between Germany and England.
