The Face of Mammon

The Matter of Money in English Renaissance Literature

David Landreth

  • Situates money in the contemporary discourse of "commonwealth," which coordinates material values with political, ethical, and theological ones
  • Discusses the ways economic developments found expression in works by Spenser, Shakespeare, Marlowe, Donne, and Nashe
  • Draws on a range of disciplines--Landreth's approach will appeal to scholars of the economics, history, politics, and literature of early modern England
