Amanda Bailey

Manchester University Press

Amanda Bailey argues that the city comedy genre, with its investigation of homoerotic networks of financial and social obligation, is both structurally and thematically indebted to changing practices surrounding the debt bond. Her essay traces how the landmark legal decision of Slade’s Case is processed through Thomas Middleton’s use of the debt bond in Michaelmas Term—a play that dramatises for the benefit of its Inns of Court audience ‘the court’s intensified interest in the intentionality of the debtor’

Keywords:   Michaelmas Term, Thomas Middleton, Debt, Bond, City comedy
