The focal point in this paper, The Effect of Social Context on the Formation of Cultural Identity and its Fashioning According to Stephen Greenblatt, is to highlight Greenblatt's attitude towards the forming of the cultural identity. It pays attention to Greenblatt's belief that the culture of any society plays a significant role in shaping the identity of its people. In this respect, literature, which is one of the essential constituents of the cultural products, may determine the identity of its readers. Going further, this study examines Greenblatt's Renaissance Self-Fashioning to show how he relates the fashioning of the self to outside factors. To prove the credibility of such vision, Greenblatt studies a number of the renaissance writers.
