Restoration Journal

Each issue contains scholarly essays; scholarly book reviews; and a unique, comprehensive and annotated bibliography of recent scholarship.

Purpose & Scope

Restoration publishes scholarly and critical essays on any subject in the field. We are open to all critical, scholarly, and theoretical approach that lead to new insights into English literature and culture, 1660-1700. We understand the Restoration period and its writing as wide (cosmopolitan connections; colonial projects; imperial ambitions), long (the continuing influence of Restoration drama into the eighteenth century, for example), and deep (aesthetics, politics, and cultural formations crucial to the period that continue to shape our world).
