Fusing historiography with literary criticism, 'Between Nations' produces an array of unexpected readings of early modern texts. Starting from the premise that England has never been able to emerge or define itself from its neighbours on the British Isles, this book places Renaissance England and its literature at a meeting of English, Irish, Scottish, and Welsh histories. It ranges from the late sixteenth through the late seventeenth centuries and deals with the 'reigns' of three monarchs and one regicide, Elizabeth I, James VI and I, Charles II, and Oliver Cromwell.
