About the Authors
  • 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.

    Reviews & endorsements

    "An original and finely argued book--filled with careful close reading and fine scholarship. Highly recommended for graduate students, researchers, and faculty." Choice

    "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
