Product description

"Rogues and Early Modern English Culture" is a definitive collection of critical essays on the literary and cultural impact of the early modern rogue. Under various names - rogues, vagrants, molls, doxies, vagabonds, cony-catchers, masterless men, caterpillars of the commonwealth - this group of marginal figures, poor men and women with no clear social place or identity, exploded onto the scene in sixteenth century English history and culture. Early modern representations of the rogue or moll in pamphlets, plays, poems, ballads, historical records, and the infamous Tudor Poor Laws treated these characters as harbingers of emerging social, economic, and cultural changes.
