40 The popular Elizabethan authors 41 careers of Elizabethan popular authors, then, need to be re-investigated in the light of new knowledge and recent research. The following sketch will serve that purpose, and it will also introduce the popular authors whose works are the subjects of this book. Any discussion of Elizabethan authors is necessarily a sketch, not a painting, for the evidence concerning many authors is sparse. To begin with, one cannot ascertain the exact number of authors responsible for the 296 popular works under consideration, for twenty-nine works are anonymous.
Elizabethan popular literature emerged in a country that enjoyed what, by European standards, can be described only as domestic bliss. When Elizabeth came to the throne, however, English commerce was backward by European standards; and, despite its progress, it was still working to catch up with European economic developments in 1603. The country had only a small merchant marine, only one large-scale industry, and limited trade routes on which it was dependent for a large number of essential imports.
The Fellowship of Merchant Adventurers, formally recognized in 1486 and 1502, was technically a fellowship of all merchants connected with the cloth trade, not just London merchants. 29 Thus, the profits from some half of England's total export trade fell into the hands of these few London merchants; and more than half these profits accrued to the elite of the Fellowship (consisting of some 11-12% of its total membership) which by itself controlled half the trade on which the company had its monopoly.
