The Catholic contribution to English literary tradition has been largely ignored or misunderstood. This publication units out to rehabilitate quite a lot of Catholic resourceful writing, whereas exposing the position of anti-Catholicism as an innovative stimulus to mainstream writers in Tudor and Stuart England. It discusses canonical figures equivalent to 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 subject matters to emerge are the anti-Catholic imagery of revenge tragedy and the definitive contribution made through Southwell and Crashaw to the post-Reformation revival of non secular verse in England. Alison Shell bargains a desirable exploration of the rhetorical stratagems in which 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.
