This chapter explores how the texts of Elizabethan country house entertainments were produced and circulated through the media of printed pamphlet and manuscript separate, the distinctive features of these media, and the roles of authors, patrons, scribes, publishers, and readers, in the production of texts. It provides an overview of Elizabethan entertainment texts and also looks in detail at the 1602 Harefield entertainment by John Davies. The multiple surviving manuscripts of this entertainment reveal much unique detail about the mechanics of how these texts were produced and circulated.

Keywords:   Harefield entertainment, manuscript separates, John Davies, pamphlets
