Presents a study of Early Modern ideas of emotion, self-indulgence, and self-control in the literature and moral thought of the 16th and 17th centuries. This work explores how writers of the English Renaissance transformed their understanding of the passions, recalibrating emotion as an important constituent of ethical life rather than the enemy.
Christopher Tilmouth's wide-ranging study of Early Modern ideas of the passions explores a series of philosophical authors in relation to poets and dramatists of the period 1580 to 1680. Aristotle, Aquinas, Augustine, and Hobbes receive detailed treatment here, alongside Spenser's Faerie Queene, Hamlet and Julius Caesar, the lyrics of Herbert and Crashaw, and Milton's Paradise Lost. Central to this innovative exploration of literary-philosophical relations is a comprehensive reappraisal of the works of the Earl of Rochester.
