Summary Covington explores the manner in which the theme of physical and symbolic woundedness was claimed by a range of discourses in a century of turbulence and change. Covington explores the manner in which the theme of physical and symbolic woundedness was claimed by a range of discourses in a century of turbulence and change.
"Covington probes the development of a pervasive and disturbing figure of speech through a broadly informed and richly detailed analysis of key early modern political and cultural texts. Covington's sophisticated comparison of legal tracts, historical accounts, political polemics, spiritual treatises, and amorous verse shows how they all fuse spectacular images of strength and mutilation in a century of civil war and thus perpetuate and transform older ideas of martyrdom and redemptive suffering." - Richard C. McCoy, Professor of English, Queens College and The Graduate Center, CUNY and author of Alterations of State: Sacred Kingship in the English Reformation "A fascinating, wide-ranging and - dare I say - penetrating study, combining high theory and close reading with effects so powerful they sometimes distress, even wound." - Diane Purkiss, Keble College, Oxford University and author of Literature, Politics and Gender in the English Civil War.
