Courtship and Constraint: Rethinking the Making of Marriage in Tudor England (Politics, Culture and Society in Early Modern Britain)
Diana O'Hara (Author)
The first study of early modern English courtship as a subject in its own right. New historical and anthropological insights into the making of marriage, and an arresting and exciting contribution to the history of the family. Takes the interpretation of the English church court material to a new level of sophistication. Explores new or neglected subjects such as the use of gifts or tokens and the role of go-betweens in English courtship. The fresh and wholly original perspectives on English courtship offered here should redirect and revitalise the history of marriage in early modern England. -- .
