Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Writing to the King is a valuable contribution, challenging the usual periodizations, and constructing a coherent narrative of ideological development over the century, across some interesting writings which have hitherto suffered from relative neglect."
Laura Ashe, Medium Aevum
