Challenging the deference to royal ideology that often typifies masque criticism, this study argues for the greater involvement of the masque in the wider political culture and discourses of early modern England. Drawing on news-books, contemporary reports, libellous verse and early political cartoons, and ranging across court and non-court texts, this study decentres Stuart masquing culture, to explore how masques participated in politics beyond the court, offering an alternative view of Ben Jonson's interactions with political and popular culture.
