(Re) Creating Memory: fiction and the English Civil War.

I have spent the past few years collecting titles for this project. If you come up with any that aren’t listed here, please let me know. Although the texts can cover any period from around the 1630s up to the Glorious Revolution, those outside of the period 1638-1660 must be concerned with the lead up or legacy of war.

Texts which are about Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Jamaica, or Royalists in Exile are particularly welcome.
