It is always difficult to locate authorial intent, but it is especially difficult to do so under the guise of a particular label assigned to an era. Nevertheless, the immense passion that the English civil war period brought about (on both sides) is certainly appealing to a romantic concerned with the power of emotion in the human experience.
