Anthony Munday and the Catholics, 1560-1633

Ashgate, 2005

Hamilton offers a major revisionist reading of the works of Anthony Munday, one of the most prolific authors of his time, who wrote and translated in many genres, including polemical religious and political tracts, poetry, chivalric romances, history, and drama. Long dismissed as a hack, Munday is here restored to his rightful position as an historical figure at the centre of many important polital and cultural events in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century England.
