Zusammenfassung The Restoration of the Monarchy in 1660 has often been depicted as a watershed in English history. This study challenges this portrayal of events! arguing that the Restoration was in fact tentative and insecure! unsure either of its popular support or its future. Informationen zum Autor N. H. Keeble is Professor of English Studies and Deputy Principal at the University of Stirling. He is the author of Richard Baxter: Puritan Man of Letters (1982)! and The Literary Culture of Nonconformity in Later Seventeenth-Century England (1987). He has compiled a two-volume Calendar of the Correspondence of Richard Baxter (1991! with Geoffrey F. Nuttall) and has edited texts by Baxter! John Bunyan! and Lucy Hutchinson! as well as collections of essays on Bunyan and an anthology illustrating The Cultural Identity of Seventeenth-Century Woman (1994). Klappentext This cultural history challenges the standard depiction of the 1660s as the beginning of a new age of stability! demonstrating that the decade following the Restoration was just as complex and exciting as the revolutionary years that preceded it.
