Abstract

Writers and their works, it is argued in this study, are often motivated more by political and religious anxiety than medical illness. Psychological and even physical ill health may be symptoms of the political and religious context. The argument posited here draws out the relationship between public life and private feeling in selected works by Richard Baxter and John Bunyan.
