Drawing upon the insights of psychoanalysis and a wide array of sources-from lyrical Puritan marriage sermons to the works of Dryden, Congreve, and Richardson-Edmund Leites overturns the stereotype of Puritans as cold-blooded ascetics as he examines the sexual attitudes of seventeenth- and eighteenth- century England and demonstrates the impact they have had on modern beliefs.
