54 Oxford's Literary Circle
Monstrous Adversary
Liverpool University Press

This chapter considers the possible existence of a literary ‘circle’ with Oxford as patron. This is based on Thomas Watson's publication of a collection of verse in 1582, which included a dedication to Oxford. The chapter also presents a 16 April letter to Walsingham, where Mauvissière sought protection for Rocco Bonetti; and a July 1582 letter where John Lyly, having fallen out with Oxford, asked Burghley to intercede on his behalf.

Keywords:   Edward de Vere, Walsingham, Thomas Watson, Mauvissière, Rocco Bonetti, John Lyly
