Writing the English Republic by David Norbrook

Book Description

'[Norbrook's] marvellously original, densely researched study of the English republican imagination is an attempt to retrieve forgotten figures like the regicide Henry Marten, as well as to extend our understanding of the works of Milton and Marvell.' Tom Paulin, The Independent '[A] fine and important book ...I suspect that Writing the English Republic will have as large and lasting an impact as any previous or readily foreseeable study of the relationship between literature and politics in seventeenth-century England. [Norbrook] writes in an attractively exploratory spirit which resists dogmatism and the sealing of argument.' Blair Worden,Times Literary Supplement 'The case for the republican conscience resounds most eloquently in the impressive coda to this book ...but the pay-off for historians stems above all from Norbrook's decision to produce a theme-driven argument instead of a general survey. This has led him to dig deep into the textual remains of the Revolution, rather than content himself with the familiar surface structures.' London Review of Books

Lucretius and the Early Modern by David Norbrook Lucretius and the Early Modern, Hardback (October 2015)

This collection of essays presents a series of case studies which demonstrates the sophisticated ways in which different readers across the world have approached and interpreted Lucretius' remarkable poem De rerum natura over the centuries, from Lucretius' contemporary audience to the European Enlightenment.

Works of Lucy Hutchinson by David Norbrook Works of Lucy Hutchinson, Paperback (December 2011)

Volume I in a four-volume edition of the writings of Lucy Hutchinson, which have never before been published in a collected edition. Hutchinson's translation of Lucretius's classical epic De rerum natura is provided alongside the Latin text she used. The detailed commentary and full introduction illuminate the translation and its contexts.

Poetry and Politics in the English Renaissance by David Norbrook Poetry and Politics in the English Renaissance, Hardback (September 2002)

This title establishes the radical currents of thought shaping Renaissance poetry: civic humanism and apocalyptic Protestantism. The author shows how Elizabethan poets like Sidney and Spenser, often seen as conservative monarchists, responded powerfully if sometimes ambivalently to radical ideas.

Order and Disorder by David Norbrook Order and Disorder, Paperback (January 2001)

Order and Disorder, the first epic poem by an Englishwoman, has never before been available in its entirety. The first five cantos were printed anonymously in 1679, but fifteen further cantos remained in manuscript, probably because they were so politically sensitive.
