The aim of this volume is to bring literary historians together with constititutional and state historians to reflect on the political and ideological upheavals of Britain in 1614 from various perspectives. In the aftermath of new historicism and "revisionist" Stuart historiography the time seems right for the detailed study of highly specific historical moments and localities, and 1614 seems particularly in need of renewed attention because few traditional historians have seriously addressed the constitutional crisis of the ill-fated parliament of that year. Literary historians, too, have failed to bring this significant political moment into focus, despite the fact that there were many literary interventions in contemporary debates of the period. This volume investigates a number of key issues of this decisive political watershed - and examines not only the disastrous parliament, but also wider problems connected to commerce and economics and the freedom of political debate.
