The use of the adjectives “civilized” and “barbarian” must be understood in the context of the English colonization of Wales, Scotland, and Ireland over centuries. As Philip Wolf puts it: “The Tudor reign […] itself compelled to counteract with a new semantics of inclusion and exclusion, triggering off the dialectics of identity and alterity” (151) in Philip Wolf, “The Emergence of National Identity in Early Modern England: Causes and Ideological Representations” in Writing the Early Modern English Nation: The Transformation of National Identity, Herbert Grabes (ed.) (Amsterdam-Atlanta, GA: Rodopi, 2001),149-72; Catherine Nicholson, Uncommon Tongues: Eloquence and Eccentricity in the English Renaissance, Philadelphia (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2014).
