(p.231) Conclusion
The ‘Shepheards Nation’

While Browne, Brooke, and Wither no longer pursued exchanges of texts after the 1620s as each of these writers, by then, were already preoccupied with other concerns, this book has strategically divided the study of textual exchanges between these authors into two different periods namely 1614 and the early 1620s. Looking into these textual exchanges has revealed that this community was anything but static. These differences have illustrated a conceptual model which involves how certain fictional narratives can be loosened from the original contexts in which they are initially seen in. While actual social networks and the fictions of a community in 1614 were linked by a variety of factors, the works of these three writers were more widely disseminated during the 1620s.

Keywords:   Browne, Brooke, Wither, 1620s, 1614, conceptual model, textual exchange
