Early Modern European Crime Literature: Ideology, Emotions and Social Norms

Edited by Maurizio Ascari and Gilberta Golinelli

This issue aims to explore various inter-related fields within the vast domain of European crime literature, with a particular focus on the British Isles. The literary and cultural phenomena we intend to investigate range from street literature, with its variety of broadsides and chapbooks, to drama (from revenge tragedies to domestic tragedies) and providential fictions, including the translation and transnational circulation of crime stories. While studying the connection between real crime and the literary imagination at various levels, this issue delves into the ideological import of crime narratives intended as prevention of crime, a form of psychological ‘policing’ that compensated for the absence of organized police forces by reasserting the inevitability of mundane and supernatural punishment.
