By: Richard Helgerson (author)Paperback
1 - 2 weeks availability
Shakespeare, Vermeer, Lope de Vega, Moliere, and Diderot don't usually keep company with one another. But in this book, Richard Helgerson shows that each contributed to a common project of great significance: the artistic promotion of the middle-class home. In a study that stretches over two centuries, Helgerson looks beneath European drama and painting to reveal an unexpected prehistory of modern domesticity.
Richard Helgerson is a professor of English at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He is the author of "The Elizabethan Prodigals" and "Self-Crowned Laureates: Spenser, Jonson, Milton, and the Literary System," as well as "Forms of Nationhood: The Elizabethan Writing of England," which won the British Council Prize in the Humanities and the James Russell Lowell Prize of the Modern Language Association.
