9780812241709: English Renaissance Drama and the Specter of Spain: Ethnopoetics and Empire

The specter of Spain rarely figures in our discussions of the drama that is often regarded as the crowning achievement of the English literary Renaissance. Yet dramatists such as Thomas Kyd, Christopher Marlowe, and William Shakespeare are exactly contemporary with England's protracted conflict with the Spanish Empire, a traditional ally turned archetypical adversary. Were these playwrights really so mute with respect to their nation's Spanish troubles? Or have we failed—for reasons cultural and institutional—to hear the Hispanophobic crosstalk that permeated the drama no less than England's other public discourses?

Imagining an early modern public sphere in which dramatists cross pens with proto-imperialists, Protestant polemicists, recusant apologists, and a Machiavellian network of propagandists that included high government officials as well as journeyman printers, Eric Griffin uncovers the rhetorical strategies through which the Hispanophobic perspectives that shaped the so-called Black Legend of Spanish Cruelty were written into English cultural memory. At the same time, he demonstrates that the English were as ready to invoke Spain in the spirit of envious emulation as to demonize the Spanish other as an ethnic agent of intolerance and oppression.

Interrogating the Whiggish orientation that has continued to view the English Renaissance through a haze of Anglo-American triumphalism, English Renaissance Drama and the Specter of Spain recovers the voices of key Spanish participants and the "Hispanized" Catholic resistance, revealing how England and Spain continued to draw upon shared traditions and cultural resources, even during the moments of their most storied confrontation.

About the Author:

Eric J. Griffin is Associate Professor of English and Director of Latin American Studies at Millsaps College.

Review:

"Eric Griffin's compelling and lucidly argued study of hispanophobia in late Elizabethan drama. . . is essential reading for all those interested in early modern Anglo-Spanish relations, the history of racial difference and colonial history, as well as in Renaissance English history and literature more generally." -Review of English Studies

"complexly comparative . . . this is the great strength of Griffin's book: he takes canonical authors such as Marlowe and Shakespeare and performs on them such acts of critical dexterity that the reader is left almost breathless. (It will be impossible for me ever to see Othello in quite the same way again.)" -Comparative Drama

"Griffin is a great storyteller . . . The research here is rich in range and depth and provides a persuasive base for the claim that, as England, and English playwrights, worked to construct a new English nationalism, one of their focal points was Spain." -Studies in English Literature (SEL)

"Griffin has summoned a spectre that will continue to visit the pages of Renaissance literature, will linger in the mind, and will raise new questions as it does so." -Times Literary Supplement (TLS)
