Editorial Reviews

Book Description

Praise and Paradox explores the relationship of language, literary structure, and social ideology in the popular Elizabethan literature that praised merchants, industrialists and craftsmen. This literature relied on paradoxical new stereotypes because its authors had no language or ideology that enabled them to separate bourgeois values from the old aristocratic ones.

About the Author

Lyndal Roper is professor of history at the University of Oxford and a fellow of Balliol College.
