Critical sites about Bartholomew Fair

The (Self)-Fashioning of Ezekiel Edgworth in Jonson’s Bartholomew Fair
“Jonson three times transformed John Selman, caught picking a purse in the Chapel Royal on Christmas day 1612, into ‘the Christmas Cutpurse’: in the same season’s Twelfth Night masque Love Restored, in a ballad sung in Bartholomew Fair, and in the same play’s cutpurse Ezekiel Edgworth. Selman and Edgworth disguised themselves as gentlemen to quiet suspicion, but Edgworth (perhaps like Selman) really aspires to gentle status. The real gentlemen Winwife and Quarlous rebuff his gestures of equality, but resemble him because they steal documents and women to enrich themselves.”
Contains: Character Analysis, Historical Context,
Author: Jean MacIntyre
From: Early Modern Literary Studies 4.3 (January, 1999): 4.1-21
