Traditional Holidays During the Fifteenth Through Seventeenth Centuries in England
2012 0-7734-4051-8
The book argues that the English people in the early modern period magnified their daily activities during holidays and recounting these activities in their folklore. Magnified socio-economic, gendered, and even ageist tensions of the writers as well as among the people of whom they write. These tales are told through several forms; for instance in letters, diaries, witchcraft trial pamphlets, chronicles, and folklore, which are the primary source documents that are examined.
