As William Browne published The Shepheards Pipe — his collection of eclogues — with Christopher Brooke, George Wither, and John Davies, Wither was able to publish a sequel to this collection entitled The Shepherds Hunting in 1615 where Marshalsea becomes a venue for pastoral teaching which is visited by his friends ‘Cuddy’, ‘Willy’ Browne, and William Ferrar. Part of the efforts attributed to the production of such writings involves the writers' attempt at establishing a name for themselves in the print community. Although the writers may have used varied styles in their works, these collections veer away from such division since these volumes supposedly unify a community through commonplace political and poetic ideologies and principles.
