About the Author

The Author: Paul Strauss received his Ph.D. in English from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. He has taught at Eastern New Mexico University, Portales, New Mexico; at the University of Houston; and is presently a lecturer in English at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.


Dr. Strauss has written a valuable and extraordinarily lucid study of four Catholic Recusant writers of the sixteenth century. John Fisher, Thomas More, and Robert Southwell were imprisoned and executed for holding on to the old faith; Benedict Canfield was imprisoned and later exiled for the same reason. They all wrote books while undergoing their ordeal, and these books have a perennial interest since they search out hope and consolation during times of religious persecution. This study is particularly useful because these Recusant writers are often neglected in current critical study. In addition, the book is a pleasure to read. (Richard Harp, University of Nevada, Las Vegas)
