This ambitious new study is a comprehensive account of cross-channel cultural exchanges between seventeenth-century France and England, and includes discussion of literary texts, poems, historical figures, garden design, fashion, music, dance, food, the book market, and the theater. Gesa Stedman investigates actual exchange processes in order to shed light on the connection between actual and symbolic exchange, and provides welcome insight into seventeenth-century cultural exchange.
