This book brings together a number of distinguished historians, literary and cultural scholars to explore the continuum of the English Republic and the Restoration of the Stuart monarchy in 1660. Examining the continuities between periods frequently regarded as discrete, the volume not only challenges a traditional period boundary but sheds much new light on the political, religious and cultural conditions before and after the restoration of monarchy and church. Essays address a wide range of topics including rebellion, religion and dissent, republicanism and political theory, theatre, opera and art. Canonical writers Milton, Marvell, Hobbes - are discussed alongside lesser known figures, such as the projector William Petty and the prophetess Eleanor Davies, whose work equally crossed the ideological divide.

More than fifty specialists have contributed to this new edition of volume 1 of The Cambridge Bibliography of English Literature. The design of the original work has established itself so firmly as a workable solution to the immense problems of analysis, articulation and coordination that it has been retained in all its essentials for the new edition. The task of the new contributors has been to revise and integrate the lists of 1940 and 1957, to add materials of the following decade, to correct and refine the bibliographical details already available, and to re-shape the whole according to a new series of conventions devised to give greater clarity and consistency to the entries.
