This book examines a period of fundamental importance to English history in the build-up to the Civil War. This is an interdisciplinary study bringing together scholars from historical and literary backgrounds. These essays address politics, religion, the monarchy, culture, literature and art history. This book investigates the question of whether it was Charles's dangerous policy of 'personal rule' which put England on the road to civil war, and provides the tools for a better understanding of the causes of the English Civil War.
