Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Literary Cultures and Public Opinion in the Low Countries, 1450-1650 contains the Table of Contents, the list of illustrations and the Preface. The book focuses on the role of literary culture in the formation of public opinion in the Low Countries between 1450 and 1650 and on the use of literature for the study of public opinion. For pragmatic reasons, the contributions included in the book are confined to literature in Latin and in Dutch, although the Low Countries also had a rich literary culture in French. The latter was partly developed and sponsored by literary societies comparable to the Dutch-speaking chambers of rhetoric, such as the confraternities of the 'puys' and the compagnies joyeuses in the French-speaking Low Countries now in Belgium and France. The interplay between these three literary cultures was intense and merits further study.

Keywords: literary cultures; Low Countries; public opinion
