The Literary and Cultural Spaces of Restoration London
Cambridge University Press, 1998 - 277 من الصفحات
In September 1666 the Great Fire destroyed four-fifths of the ancient City of London within three days. The Literary and Cultural Spaces of Restoration London situates the literature of Restoration and early Augustan England within the historical and cultural contexts of the rebuilding of London after the Great Fire. Cynthia Wall reads the marked topographical specificity of plays, poems, and novels as part of a wider cultural network of responses to changing perceptions of urban space, and she shows how the literatures of the period - along with the technologies of surveying, mapping, rebuilding, and officially redescribing the city - attempt to reinvest the city with comprehensible meaning and create new spaces for new genres.
