Exploring the intersections between the culture of the wool broadcloth industry and the imaginative literature of the early modern period, this study shows how the culture of the cloth industry was intrinsically connected to the development of emerging English nationalism. Each chapter ties a particular genre with a specific issue of the cloth industry, demonstrating the distinct work different literary genres contributed to the culture of cloth.
