Summary
This fascinating collection of essays written by renowned and emerging scholars of the early modern period explores the relationship between the extraordinary and the everyday to provide a greater understanding of and new insights into the mental and material worlds of sixteenth-and seventeenth-century England. By juxtaposing cases that struck early modern people as irregular or strange with things that they found perfectly usual, everyday matters such as household relationships, farting, drinking and exchanging insults are shown to reveal extraordinary aspects of early modern life. At the same time, seemingly exceptional events and beliefs - such as those involving ghosts, prophecies, and cannibalism - illuminate something of the routine experience of ordinary people. The contributions employ a variety of different approaches to engage with and illuminate the past, demonstrating that categories such as the strange and the commonplace were the subject of constant renegotiation, just as they are now. --Book Jacket
