How did early modern writers conceive of the relationship between their bodies, their minds and the environment? This volume examines the surprisingly dynamic and varied mediations early modern writers posited between the microcosm and macrocosm, ranging from discourses on the ecology of passions to striking examples of distributed cognition. Environment and Embodiment in Early Modern England presents eleven essays by prominent scholars that invite us to rethink not only what constitutes an environment but also where the environment ends and selfhood begins. Contributors present new readings of John Donne, Andrew Marvell, George Puttenham, Sir Thomas More, Edmund Spenser and William Shakespeare, as well as offering fresh insights into the cultural work of the theatre, romance, travel, poetry and magic.
