The Politics of Court Scandal in Early Modern England ePUB

by Alastair Bellany This is the first detailed study of the political significance of the seventeenth-century's most notorious and sensational court scandal—the murder of Sir Thomas Overbury. Insisting that images of the scandalous court had serious political importance, the book retells the tale of Overbury's rise to power, his fall and murder in 1613, and the public revelation of the murder two years later. The book examines the production and circulation of news about the scandal and assesses the political significance of contemporary depictions of the affair.
