Description - Writing and Society by Nigel Wheale

Explores the relationship between the growth in popular literacy and the development of new readerships and the authors addressing them. The book provides a year-by-year chronology of political events in relation to cultural production. This overview of relevant debates in literacy critical theory and historiography includes facsimile pages with commentary from the most influential books of the period. The authors describe and analyze: the development of literacy by status; gender and region in Britain; structures of patronage and censorship; the fundamental role of the publishing industry; the relation between elite literary and popular cultures; and the remarkable growth of female literacy and publication. The book brings together the materials necessary to understand Elizabethan, Jacobean and Carolean culture in relation to early modern British literacy and cultural politics.
