Literature and nationalism

Part of book or chapter of book English OPEN
Ivic, C (2016)

Literature has long played a crucial role in constructing and disseminating what Benedict Anderson terms “imagined communities.” The invention of an English sense of national identity emerged in full in the Elizabethan period. The early modern period is a rich site for the study of literature and nationalism not only because this period witnessed profound and contested articulations of the political nation, but also because it bears witness to the ways in which nationalism is underpinned by a variety of cultural discourses, including class, gender, race, and religion.
