about

In The Writing of Royalism, Robert Wilcher charts the political and ideological development of "royalism" between 1628 and 1660. His study situates a wide range of minor and canonical texts in the tumultuous political contexts of the time, helpfully integrating them into a detailed historical narrative. He illustrates the role of literature in forging a party committed to the military defense of royalist values and determined to sustain them in defeat.
