Other References: Note! These references are for information only. I may draw upon them in my discussion, but do not expect you to read them.
Note: The mayor-elect in 1613 was named Sir Thomas Middleton. The author of the mayoral show, sponsored by the Grocers’ Company, is also named Thomas Middleton.
Discussion Questions:
  1. Keeping in mind the context of the 1603 plague that occasioned Dekker’s play and the physical sites he mentions, how does Dekker map a moral topography onto London? Are there other maps or works we’ve looked at that do a similar reading of the city? (CK)
  2. While Dekker’s play is an obvious parody of the Lord Mayor’s Pageant, it can also be seen as a parody of the civic offices that Stow presents in Alderman, Maiors and Shiriffes. How does Dekker invert and undermine Stow’s representation of these civic offices? What is the effect of this inversion? (CK)
