Rethinking the Early Modern

Series Editors: Marcus Keller, Ellen McClure and Feisal Mohamed

Recent theoretical and methodological innovations in the humanities, from queer theory to ecocriticism, have opened numerous new venues for a reexamination of the literatures and cultures of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Indeed they invite us to re-think early modernity. With a focus on the English and French traditions, the books in this series address the question of what early modernity is by pursuing an original approach to early modern literature and culture, putting them into a theoretically informed, productive dialogue with current concerns of humanistic inquiry.
