520 1  "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.
