“Early Modern English Literature”
Early modern English authors (c. 1453-1789) wrote in a period of unprecedented national and international political, cultural, social, religious, and scientific changes. Literature in English across a range of traditional and alternative genres reflected, resisted, and redefined these developments. We invite papers that identify and analyse the many forms of evidence of the literary engagement with transformative issues, events, and axes within and outside of the British Isles.
Editors of the number: Elizabeth Sauer (Brock University, Canadá) eand Luiz Fernando Ferreira Sá (UFMG)

“La révolution littéraire et la révolution politique ont fait en moi leur jonction.” (Victor Hugo, in Tas de pierres, n.d.)
We speak of revolutions in many different registers, from political to literary. What does it mean for a movement to coalesce under the label of “revolution?” What makes a change “revolutionary?”
