Overview
This is the first book-length biography of Tudor writer, soldier, and courtier Thomas Churchyard (c.1529-1604), a figure well-known yet long neglected in early modern studies, who lived, wrote, and fought under five different monarchs and enjoyed an unrivalled fifty-year literary career. We are all very familiar with twentieth-century examples of war-poetry and with soldiers whose battlefield experiences are expressed in literary form, but this book draws attention to Tudor soldier-authors and the early modern art of war, and focuses on the chequered career (or really careers) of an individual who spent his life seeking advancement and enrichment using both pen and sword. Churchyard's biography is also the story of professional authorship in sixteenth-century England - of one man's life-long attempt to establish his own kind of literary 'branding' with which to promote himself as an active, industrious, original writer.
