About this title


Seventeenth-century England witnessed the birth of the modern era and the hymns of that age reflect the spirit of those tumultuous days of transition. Present in these hymns are expressions of civic and religious strife, radical political upheavals, echoes of paganism, fragments of scientific thought along with images of social conditions, expressions of personal devotion, and bountiful measures of Christian doctrine. The work demonstrates that hymns bear the marks of the culture from which they spring and recognizes the connection of these hymns to the wider body of 17th century literature.


«This book is well researched and written. It will be an asset to any cultural collection of literary and historical works. All libraries in the Humanities should have copies. University programs of study in English and Literature would welcome this book as a text for critical review of the interplay of culture and history during the seventeenth century. I congratulate the author on her excellent production.» (Myrtle I. Jonas, CAPS)
