Abstract only
Log-in for full text

This chapter provides a micro-historical analysis of William Fuller, who, during his lifetime, assumed several different elite roles, and analyses how Fuller represented himself and his surroundings, linking the themes of autobiography and imposture. It explains Fuller's sense of the mismatch between his own poverty and noble kin and his double or ‘poly-identity’ in religious, social and political terms, and also examines Fuller's self-representation and self-perception.
