Exploring one of the most remarkable decades in English literary history, the 1590s, Georgia Brown focuses on the changing perceptions of the aesthetic. Brown reveals how the period's obsession with shame was expressed in fragmentary and marginal literary forms such as the sonnet sequence, epyllion and complaint. Combining theoretical perspectives with structural analysis, she studies the historical and ideological forces inscribed in rhetorical and formal developments.

Editorial Reviews

"Brown's complex, smart analytical prose and the discussion's internal cohesiveness result in a provocative new reading of late Elizabethan culture and the Elizabethans' own definition -- or if Brown is correct, redefinition--of literary value." - Wayne A. Chandler, Northwest Missouri State University
