Magic and Masculinity in Early Modern English Drama
The prevalent worldview of early modern England, clearly shaped by Protestantism, dismissed magical belief as an ideological delusion inherent to Catholicism. That same Protestantism encouraged a strong sense of individualism, through which a new masculinity found key expression. Ian McAdam's innovative study examines these issues and asks: why, then, did magical self-empowerment retain such a hold on the artistic and cultural imagination of early modern English society?
