Gangraena and the Struggle for the English Revolution

This chapter describes the production of Gangraena: its printing, licensing, and distribution. It looks at how Edwards used pamphlets as sources and at the printed debate his books provoked, particularly with John Goodwin and William Walwyn. The difficult history of reading is approached through the analysis both of the author’s intentions and methods, and of readers’ responses. The chapter stresses the interactions between print, oral communication, and manuscript circulation, both revealed in, and surrounding Gangraena, while also isolating the specific role of printed polemic in the increasing polarization amongst parliamentarians.

Keywords:   printing, licensing, pamphlets, John Goodwin, William Walwyn, oral communication, manuscript circulation, polemic, Thomas Edwards
