Primary Reading:
Secondary Reading: Foucault, Of Other Spaces. Read at JSTOR.
Other References: Woodbridge, Dionne and Mentz (an essay collection containing a number of essays about London and/or the cony-catching pamphlets). Note! These references are for information only. I may draw upon them in my discussion, but I do not expect you to read them for class.
Discussion Questions:
  • Foucault defines heterotopias as counter sites from mainstream sites of civic or social order, or, more specifically, in discussing heterotopias of deviation, he identifies these places as sites where behaviour is deviant in relation to the required mean or norm. Considering that mainstream institutions such as St Paul’s, Westminster, or the Courts are places Greene lists where the deviant activity of cony-catching is rampant, do these sites qualify as heterotopias? Can they be both, or does it depend on the user? (CK)
  • In his pamphlet on cony-catching, Greene describes the activities of another world within London – the criminal underworld of nips and foists who have a kind of fraternity or brotherhood amongst them (165). Where does this group fit into London’s communitas as described by Holinshed? Are they at the bottom because of their base activity or do they transcend the system entirely? (CK)
  • Dekker’s London is of fashionable life, whereas Peacham’s London is populous. Dekker teaches gallants how to fit in London’s everyday life; Peacham kindly warns newcomers of the city’s vice. Peacham says that the city is the most charitable place of the whole (250), and poverty itself is no vice, but by accident (250). What is Dekker’s suggestion of a newcomer’s economic status? How is it different from Peacham’s attitude? (CZ)
  • In Dekker, Peacham, and Rowlands’s writings, the three authors use distinct tones to address the newcomers. How different is the newcomers’ otherness in the three authors’ eyes? As Londoners, how do they face the newcomers’ otherness? (CZ)
