9780226504513: The Politics of Mirth: Jonson, Herrick, Milton, Marvell, and the Defense of Old Holiday Pastimes

"Leah Marcus's The Politics of Mirth: Jonson, Herrick, Milton, Marvell, and the Defense of Old Holiday Pastimes is a fascinating study of why James and Charles promoted some types of rural sport and festival and of how certain literary texts participated in promoting or critiquing royal policy. . . . Marcus provocatively links texts not often studied in conjunction with one another, and she provides strong and detailed readings of those texts."—Jean E. Howard

From the Back Cover:

The present study will focus on a marginal group of ceremonies related to the rites of church and state but practiced only sporadically in the seventeenth century--the traditional popular pastimes associated with seasonal holidays like Christmas, May Day, Whitsuntide, St. Bartholomew's Day and Michaelmas.
