Abstract

This book interrogates the relations between Reformation ideas of plain style, the coupling of simplicity with a hermeneutic transparency (as expressed in simple Englishness in Victorian and early twentieth-century literature), and the visceral aversion to the non-simple expressed in Islamophobia in contemporary England. Chapters: 1. The English Reformation: Spenser, Milton and the Protestant Aesthetic 2. Secularizing the Protestant Aesthetic: Wordsworth, Eliot and Hardy 3. Contemporary Englishness and the Protestant Aesthetic 4. English Dispositions and Islamophobia
