Provides a literary-historical narrative of the poetics of evil, which previous scholarship has not yet treated in a sustained and systematic way
Introduction-Representing Evil in Early Modern England.-Dreadful Harmony": The Poetics of Evil in Sidney, Tasso, and Spenser.- Honeyed Toads: Sinister Aesthetics in Richard III.-Monsters and the Pleasures of Divine Justice in English Popular Print, 1560-1675.- Satanic Sensibilities in Paradise Lost.- Milton's Sinister God: Poetic Justice and Chiaroscuro in Paradise Lost.- Epilogue-The Sinister after Milton.
This engrossing volume studies the poetics of evil in early modern English culture, reconciling the Renaissance belief that literature should uphold morality with the compelling and attractive representations of evil throughout the period's literature. The chapters explore a variety of texts, including Spenser's Faerie Queene , Shakespeare's Richard III , broadside ballads, and sermons, culminating in a new reading of Paradise Lost and a novel understanding of the dynamic interaction between aesthetics and theology in shaping seventeenth century Protestant piety. Through these discussions, the book introduces the concept of "sinister aesthetics": artistic conventions that can make representations of the villainous, monstrous, or hellish pleasurable.
