Reading Tudor-Stuart Texts Through Cultural Historicism (Crosscurrents: Comparative Studies in) by Albert H. Tricomi


pdf epub fb2 djvu



In an assessment of the new historicism as a form of historical knowledge, Albert Tricomi moves beyond it to present what he calls new cultural historicism. In pursuing this theme, he examines Tudor-Stuart representations of surveillance and the cultural oversight of the sexual body as revealed in Elizabethan-Jacobean drama to bring together two discourses that have not been joined before.
