This book offers a fresh examination of key seventeenth-century writers--notably Andrew Marvell, Katherine Philips and John Milton--in the context of their common interest in the republican, libertarian and oppositional potential of the philosophical tradition of Stoicism. As a study of the rhetorical and philosophical bases of English neostoicism, this book sketches an important new map of political discourse in the civil war period.
