Marlowe's plants, herbs and poisons - Public lecture
This lecture asks whether we can extend insight into Marlowe's early years by looking more widely at book culture in Elizabethan Kent. It focuses particularly on the 1570s and considers the interests of the Kentish gentry in books about natural history and related practices of gardening and farming. Tracing their engagement , the paper considers how husbandry knowledge is shared and politicised in the county that came to be known as the Garden of England.
