Abstract only
Log-in for full text

Michael C. Schoenfeldt offers final reflections on each of the twelve essays foregrounding the interrelationship between positive and negative emotions during the early modern period. In particular, he highlights the anachronism of the term emotion by emphasizing the idea of early modern passions as disturbances or perturbations that impact the body as well as the soul. Offering concise readings of Milton’s Abdiel who is unmoved among the faithless and George Herbert’s ‘Constancie,’ Schoenfeldt reminds readers of the pleasure often obtained through the control of emotional fluctuations.
