About this item

This book discusses rituals of justice—such as public executions, printed responses to the Archbishop of Canterbury’s execution speech, and King Charles I’s treason trial—in early modern England. Focusing on the ways in which genres shape these events’ multiple voices, Paul Klemp analyzes the diverse perspectives from which we must understand these rituals, particularly the victims’ last dying words.
