Resurrecting Elizabeth I in Seventeenth-Century England
Edited by Elizabeth H. Hageman and Katherine Conway

About the Editors:
Elizabeth H. Hageman is professor of English at the University of New Hampshire.

Katherine Conway is associate professor and chair of the English Department at Wheaton College in Norton, MA.

Introduced by a brief examination of the anonymous seventeenth-century miniature painting used on the book’s jacket and frontispiece, essays in Resurrecting Elizabeth I in Seventeenth-Century England combine literary and cultural analysis to show how and why images of Elizabeth Tudor appeared so widely in the century after her death and how those images were modified as the century progressed. The volume includes works by Steven W. May (on quotations and misquotations of Elizabeth’s own words), Alan R. Young (on the Phoenix Queen and her successor, James I), Georgianna Ziegler (on Elizabeth’s goddaughter, Elizabeth of Bohemia), Jonathan Baldo (on forgetting Elizabeth in Henry VIII), Lisa Gim (on Anna Maria van Schurman and Anne Bradstreet’s visions of Elizabeth as an exemplary woman), and Kim H. Noling (on John Banks’s creation of a maternal genealogy for English Protestantism).

Resurrecting Elizabeth I in Seventeenth-Century England will be important to political and cultural historians, literary scholars (including students of Shakespeare and other early modern dramatists), musicologists, women’s studies scholars, and other readers interested in England’s most famous queen.
