Conceptions of Europe in Renaissance France: Essays in Honour of Keith Cameron.

Contributors

Abstract

This collection of essays by ten leading British and French Renaissance specialists explores, for the first time, differing conceptions of Europe in Renaissance France. Four essays concentrate on problems of definition in ideological, chronological, geographical and linguistic terms; a further three address cultural exchange and political collaboration (and, inevitably, conflict) between France and England at the time of the Wars of Religion; the final three contributions focus on the construction of a European identity in the early modern period that defines itself in contrast to a significant other, be it Islamic or ‘Atlantic’. This volume will be of interest to scholars and students of French Renaissance literature and to those interested in the prehistory of our contemporary conception of Europe.
