Abstract and Keywords
The Inns were the hub of new, sixteenth-century intellectual networks of textual production and exchange — networks that had not only literary effects, but also broadly constitutional consequences. The Inns fostered mutual address by individuals brought together under the new professional, economic, and cosmopolitan circumstances of urban life. The new modes of literary production developed there reflected and enacted these relatively horizontal forms of political relation. This article focuses on three members of this community: Barnabe Googe, George Turbervile, and George Gascoigne.
