Summary Soldier, courtier, author, entertainer, and amateur spy, Thomas Churchyard saw action in most of the principal Tudor theatres of war, was a servant to 5 monarchs, and had a literary career spanning over half a century during which time he produced over 50 different works in a variety of forms and genres. Drawing on extensive archival and literary sources, Matthew Woodcock reconstructs the extraordinary life of a figure well-known yet long neglected in early modern literary studies
