has become endeared to me by being presented between myself and my readers on former occasions of the same kind, than because I have anything particular to say. Like a troublesome guest who lingers in the Hall after he has taken leave, I cannot help loitering on the threshold of my book, though the two words, T HE E ND : anticipated through twenty months, yet sorrowfully penned at last: stare at me, in capitals, from the printed page. 1 Dickens makes explicit what the novel’s final paragraph has already implied: the association of the end of the novel with

Genre, audience, and religious change in early modern England
Author: Amy G. Tan

This study analyses the career choices and religious contexts of early modern pastors who chose to become print authors, addressing ways that the ability to publish could enhance, limit, or change pastoral ministry. It demonstrates ways ministers strategically tailored content and genre to achieve certain religious goals among both clerical and lay audiences, and considers ways in which authorship was interconnected with parish work as well as one’s position within the national church. The book features an extended case study of Richard Bernard, a particularly prolific pastor-author whose career provides a coherent framework through which to analyse key features of early modern pastoral-authorial work. It further gives attention to George Gifford, Thomas Wilson, and Samuel Hieron, each of whose career circumstances and authorial choices broaden our view of different ways clerics might incorporate print as an intentional part of their religious vocation. As the first book-length analysis of the phenomenon of early modern pastors writing for print, this study provides a paradigm for understanding these clerics’ efforts in print and parish as an integral part of their careers and their overarching religious goals. By addressing pastoral-authorial work across the span of a career, and by considering how pastor-authors engaged a wide range of topics and genres, the study engages with multiple areas of current scholarly interest: censorship, private religious devotion, polemic, witchcraft, religious education, reference works, and more. The study provides a remarkably comprehensive picture of pastoral publishing and offers a new lens through which to view the intersection of emerging print technologies and religious work in this pivotal period.

The question is not whether we all have identities, but whether we are prepared to recognise them. (Younge 2010 , 40) My fascination with the notion of ‘print as other’ stems from the connections I see between printmaking and

Despite the obvious allusion to Sol LeWitt's 1969 ‘Sentences on Conceptual Art,’ the following does not privilege idea over execution. Quite the contrary, it is an attempt to equate the contradictory attitudes we hold toward prints and to explore the opposites I believe are encoded in printmaking. What I owe to LeWitt's art and prose, most

Print culture cannot be reduced to one narrative; for example the introduction of print culture in the Middle East or in India did not necessarily lead to the development of a Western humanist mindset, but was instead often adopted in order to attack colonial rule or secular values. ‘Print culture’ (as a kind of slogan) has also often been

6 Epigrams in print Given that some significant and widely known epigrammatists of the 1590s (Harington, Hoskins, the Michelborne brothers) had achieved fame through manuscript circulation alone, why did others decide to appear in print? And why print publish those individual epigrams whose moment of topical relevance was years in the past? The justification for publishing in these circumstances might be broken down into the ‘high’ and the ‘low’ defence. The ‘high’ defence, alluded to already in Chapter 1, claimed the model of Martial for justification: he had

This chapter explores two spirals, each engraved on copper and printed in Paris in the mid-seventeenth century. Both spirals, swirling from the centre towards the edges of the paper, make up a human figure: the first is Christ, the second is a foetus. In each figure resided immense power and significance for the early modern viewer. This power, as I will argue, was embedded in both religious and medical epistemologies that were entwined with each other. Bound together in a culture of

Interregnum. 2 Indeed, the aim of this chapter is to use such tracts to examine the intersection between three key issues that have featured prominently in the work of Ann Hughes: politics and society in a specific locality; the purpose and power of cheap print and its more or less intimate relationship to interpersonal disputation; and the role of women within the upheavals of the mid-seventeenth century, both as active participants

This chapter explores the speed and timing of prints and the press. The very profligacy of wood engravings binds them up with speed, at the level of both production and reception. Victorian readers confronted new wood engravings in books and magazines, page after page, week after week – seeing them much faster and more frequently than they would see
