Pamphlets and Pamphleteering in Early Modern Britain by Joad Raymond
Book DescriptionBy the end of the seventeenth century the most effective means of persuasion and communication was the pamphlet, which created influential moral and political communities of readers, and thus formed a 'public sphere' of popular, political opinion. This book is a unique history of the printed pamphlet in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Britain and traces its rise as an imaginative and often eloquent literary form. Using a long-term perspective and a broad range of historical, bibliographical and textual evidence, the book sketches a complex definition of a 'pamphlet', showing the coherence of the literary form, the diversity of genres and imaginative devices employed by pamphleteers; and it explores readers' relationship with pamphlets and how both influenced politics. Individual chapters examine topics such as Elizabethan religious controversy, the book trade, the distribution of books and pamphlets, pamphleteering in the English Civil War, women and gender, and print in the Restoration.

Milton's Angels, Paperback (February 2013)
Milton's Angels is a study of writing - theological, scientific, political, and poetic - about angels in 16th-century and 17th-century Britain. It demonstrates that angels were integral to the Protestant imagination and argues that Paradise Lost is a poem about angels that is both shockingly literal and sublimely imaginative.
Conversations with Angels, Hardback (August 2011)
Based on refractions of earlier beliefs, modern angels - at once terrible and comforting, frighteningly other and reassuringly beneficent - have acquired a powerful symbolic value. This interdisciplinary study looks at how humans conversed with angels in medieval and early modern Europe, and how they explained and represented these conversations.
