    David Hawkes is Professor of English at Arizona State University. He is the author ofIdols of the Marketplace, Ideology, The Faust Myth, and John Milton: A Hero Of Our Time. Hawkes received a long-term fellowship from the National Endowment for the Humanities, and his work has appeared in a wide range of academic and popular journals, including The Nation, the Times Literary Supplement,the Journal of the History of Ideas, Studies in English Literature, English Literary Renaissance, Milton Studiesand Shakespeare Quarterly.

    Usury is entrenched in the twenty-first century world. Recently, however, public opinion has been shifting back to the strongly hostile view of usury held by humanity for millennia before the rise of capitalism. This book examines the ways in which usury was perceived and portrayed at the very beginning of its rise to power. David Hawkes examines early modern English depictions of usury in a wide variety of literary media: plays, pamphlets, poems, political economy, and parliamentary debates. It suggests that knowledge of such portrayals may help us settle accounts with the vastly expanded form taken by usury in our own time.
