In the 17th century a profound change took place in the depiction of the body and the erotic. Whilst the metaphysics of Donne and Crashaw represented theology under the sign of the erotic and simultaneously theologized the corporeal, the Cavaliers had severed these alliances since the 1620?s.

'What may words say_?' contains a comprehensive and in many respects unconventional interpretation of The Merchant of Venice. The play's development of ideas is unfolded in a literary analysis that focuses on the poet's words in their philological, historical, and philosophical contexts. more...

This book offers a comprehensive account of the methods and practice of learning modern languages, particularly Italian, in late sixteenth and early seventeenth century England.

The 'invisible hand', Adam Smith's metaphor for the morality of capitalism, is explored in this text as being far more subtle and intricate than is usually understood, with many British realist fiction writers (Austen, Dickens, Gaskell, Eliot) having absorbed his model of ironic causality in complex societies and turned it to their own purposes. more...
