Summary
"It has traditionally been held that Robert Southwell's poetry offers a curious view of Elizabethan England from the restricted perspective of a priest-hole. This book takes apart that idea - and the poetry - word by word and discovers layers of new meanings, hidden emblems, and sharp critiques of Elizabeth's courtiers, and even of the ageing queen herself." "Using the most recent edition of Southwell's poetry and manuscript materials, Sweeney addresses both poetry and private writings, including letters and diary material, to give dramatic context to the radicalisation of a generation of Southwell's countrymen and women. She shows how the young Jesuit harnessed both drama and literature to give new poetic poignancy to their experience."--Jacket
