Synopsis: This book focuses on representative literary works that illustrate turns in the history of individuality and subjectivity and the changes in ones relations with community and society. In conjunction with The Wanderer, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Everyman, The Faerie Queene, Hamlet and Paradise Lost, Low considers pertinent historical beliefs, attitudes, and practices including: the experience of loneliness and exile; the development of sacramental confession from communal reconciliation to personal absolution from sin; the abolition of Purgatory and the traditional Christian solidarity with the ancestral dead; the role of conscience in the development of self; and the rise in Shakespeare and Milton of a typically modern sense of autonomous individuality and subjectivity.
About the Author: Anthony Low, professor of English at the New York University, is the author of numerous articles and books, including The Blaze of Noon: A reading of Samson Agonistes (Columbia UP, 1974), Love's Architecture: Devotional Modes in Seventeenth-Century English Poetry (New York UP, 1978), The Georgic Revolution (Princeton UP, 1985), and The Reinvention of Love: Poetry, Politics, and Culture from Sidney to Milton (Cambridge UP, 1993).
