Roger L'Estrange (1616-1704) was one of the most remarkable, significant and colourful figures in seventeenth-century England. This collection of essays by leading scholars of the period highlights the instrumental role he played in the shaping of the political, literary, and print cultures of the Restoration period. Taking an interdisciplinary approach the volume covers all the major aspects of his career, as well as situating them in their broader historical and literary context. By examining his career in this way the book offers insights that will prove of worth to political, social, religious and cultural historians, as well as those interested in seventeenth-century literary and book history.
