Chapter Summary

Pamphlets have long been neglected as a central object of study by both historians and literary historians. Only recently have historians started to focus on the effects of pamphlets on the political process during moments of crisis. Studying the interplay between text and context is of great importance for the early modern pamphlet in particular. The interest in as well as the possibilities for producing a pamphlet increased during a conflict. A conflict could therefore catalyse innovations in both form and content of pamphlets. Is it possible to discover such an innovation in 1650, or a change in the way in which politics was debated? This chapter shows what kind of pamphlets appeared, by making a statistical genre-analysis of all pamphlets related to the conflict. It focuses on the form and content of these booklets. The chapter describes the changing function of the pamphlet during the crisis of 1650.
