Call for Contributions: Edward Hyde, 1st Earl of Clarendon (1609–1674) A Volume of Essays
EDWARD HYDE, 1st EARL OF CLARENDON (1609–1674)
A VOLUME OF ESSAYS
Contributions are invited towards the first volume of essays on Edward Hyde, 1st earl of Clarendon (1609–1674), statesman, exile, grandfather of monarchs, and the author of works including The History of the Rebellion and The Life of Edward, Earl of Clarendon. As Chancellor of the Exchequer, Lord Chancellor and, at the Restoration, Chief Minister, Clarendon was an influential figure at the courts of Charles I and Charles II. His downfall, following his impeachment in 1667, was sudden and permanent, compelled as he was to live the last seven years of his life in exile in France. At a time when the study of royalists and royalism is flourishing, this interdisciplinary collection aims to provide the modern critical attention Clarendon’s life and writings merit. Chapter proposals of c. 250 words on any literary or biographical aspect of Clarendon should be emailed to the editor, Philip Major, by the extended deadline of 1st September 2015.
