This new understanding can also alter the valency of numerous references to concepts of loyalty and treason in the poetry, drama, and prose narratives of the period.

Among them, Thomas Watson, given his lyric elegance and Petrarchan sophistication, has seemed a particularly appealing addition. However, scholars focused primarily on Spenser have usually passed over Watson’s connections to Catholic circles.
