Abstract and Keywords

Marchamont Nedham was a witty, intellectually versatile journalist and political theorist, who began the year 1649 as a royalist journalist, hiding from Parliament's officials; in the following months he was silenced, captured, and imprisoned. He recanted and reappeared in the spring of 1650 with the new persona of a republican propagandist and journalist, thus incurring the contempt of former acquaintances and colleagues. Nedham became the most prominent and probably the most widely read republican propagandist of the seventeenth century. This article explores Nedham's allegiances and the range of writing activities they involved.

Keywords: writing, writers, journalists, republican propagandists
