Gloriana´s Rule

Literature, Religion and Power in the Age of Elizabeth

U.Porto Edições, 2006

Gloriana´s Rule derives its title and contents from a specific event, an international conference organised by the Institute of English Studies (Universidade do Porto) in June 2003 to mark the four-hundredth anniversary of the death of Elizabeth I. But this inception does not entail that the volume´s rational and goals can be described as celebratory. Rather than embodying a panegyric, the present collection aims to contribute the ongoing interrogation of the myth of Gloriana, considered in its central representations as much as in some of the more peripheral forms (in politics, language, and social practices) that have helped define the enduring cultural perception of an «Elizabethan golden age».
