Soliciting Interpretation: Literary Theory and Seventeenth-Century English Poetry

Overview

The essays in this volume are deeply skeptical of many of the received ideas about a literature that is itself sensitive to the disruption of epistemological, social, and economic certainties. What emerges in the collection is not a new consensus but a skeptical interrogation of numerous received ideas along a variety of fronts.
