Additional Information: In this chapter, Mahlberg studies Henry Neville's 'Isle of Pines'- a text published anonymously in a genre which, being located in a borderland between fact and fiction, posed interpretive problems for contemporary readers and historians. Malhberg argues that Neville's bawdy dystopian island fiction owed its form to its author's wish to provide his readers with a critical political statement that would be licensed for publication despite the sensitivities of a recently restored monarchy grappling with the implications of Englands humiliating defeat at the hands of rebublican Holland in 1667.
