Dryden and the Problem of Freedom: The Republican Aftermath, 1649-1680

Capa
Yale University Press, 1997 - 285 páginas
In this revisionary study of Dryden's thought, David Haley argues that Dryden was the first English poet after Shakespeare to engage in historical reflection upon his own culture. Addressing an audience for whom literature was bound up with religion and politics, Dryden exercised the moral integrity of a public poet and brought home to his readers the meaning of their historical experience.
