Outlaws in Literature, History, and Culture examines the nature, function, and context of the outlaw and the outlawed - people, spaces, practices - in the pre-modern world, and in its modern representations. By its nature, outlawry reflects not only the outlawed, but the forces of law which seek to define and to contain it. Throughout the centuries, a wide and ever-changing, and yet ever familiar, variety of outlaw characters and narratives have captured the imagination of audiences both particular and general, local and global.
