Summary note
Revealing the complex and unfamiliar forms of friendship that existed between men in the late sixteenth century, this book uses the unpublished letter archive of the Elizabethan spy Anthony Bacon in order to show how he negotiated a path through life that relied on the support of his friends, rather than the advantages and status that came with marriage.
