- The (Self)-Fashioning of Ezekiel Edgworth in Jonson’s Bartholomew Fair
- “Jonson three times transformed John Selman, caught picking a purse in the ChapelRoyal on Christmas day 1612, into ‘the Christmas Cutpurse’: in the same season’sTwelfth Night masque Love Restored, in a ballad sung in Bartholomew Fair, and in thesame play’s cutpurse Ezekiel Edgworth. Selman and Edgworth disguised themselvesas gentlemen to quiet suspicion, but Edgworth (perhaps like Selman) really aspires togentle status. The real gentlemen Winwife and Quarlous rebuff his gestures ofequality, but resemble him because they steal documents and women to enrichthemselves.”
