Full Description


Geoffrey of Monmouth's History of Britain exerted a strong influence on the historiographers of 15th- and 16th-century England, not least for its patriotism and for the timely parallels between ancient Roman invaders and the Roman Catholic threat. Curran's thesis, extremely detailed and thorough, examines the complex relationship between England and Rome, and between Protestantism and Catholicism, and looks at how contemporary writers such as Drayton, Shakespeare, Spenser and Milton appropriated elements of Geoffrey's account, particularly his anti-Roman narrative', in their own reworking of British history and British national identity.
