This publication units out to rehabilitate quite a lot of Catholic inventive writing, whereas exposing the function of anti-Catholicism as an imaginitive stimulus to mainstream writers in Tudor and Stuart England. It discusses canonical figures reminiscent of Sidney, Spenser, Webster and Middleton, these whose presence within the canon has been extra fitful, and lots of who've escaped the eye of literary critics. one of the topics to emerge are the anti-Catholic imagery of revenge tragedy and the definitive contribution made via Southwell and Crashaw to the post-Reformation revival of spiritual verse in England. Alison Shell bargains a desirable exploration of the rhetorical stratagems wherein Catholics sought to illustrate simultaneous loyalties to the monarch and to their faith, and of the stimulus given to the Catholic literary mind's eye by way of the persecution and exile such a lot of of those writers suffered.
