Royalist Identities shifts the emphasis from the question "What is Royalism?" to "What did Royalism want to be?" The texts analyzed show how Royalism was concerned with the construction of a set of binary roles and behavioral models designed to perpetuate a certain paradigm of social stability. De Groot deploys theories of identity to analyze the literature and culture of this important period--including the works of Milton, Marvell, Herrick and Cowley, amongst others--and in particular to discuss the formation and construction of an ideologically inflected cultural and social identity.
