Sara Vandenburg's list of books might be of great help to anybody
interested in the issue of Elizabetahn espionage. To the list, I would
add John Bossy's <Giordano Bruno and the Embassy Affair> (Yale, 1991).
Also a few chapters in Patricia Parker's new book < Shakespeare from the
MArgins> (Chicago, 1996) and Albert Tricomi's <Reading Tudor-Stuart
Texts through Historical Materialism> (Gainesville, 1996).

Comment:        Re: SHK 8.0413  Qs: Elizabeth Espionage; Falstaff

Nichols' "The Reckoning" is a magnificent study of Marlowe's apparently
lifelong involvement in the Elizabethan secret service.  It makes a
persuasive case that those with Marlowe when he was murdered were also
involved with various secret service factions and that the official
records recounting a brawl over the reckoning at an inn (Shakespeare's
"great reckoning in a small room") are suspect.

Also relevant is Linda Woodbridge, The Sythe of Saturn, a scholarly and
very readable book on magic good and bad.

For HR Greenburg and his inquiry about Elizabethan espionage; try John
Bossy's 'Giordano Bruno and the Embassy Affair', and Charles Nicholls'
'The Reckoning' - both of which are good and accessible studies of two
of the more notorious cases.
