(p.83) 3 Royal Progress
Literature and Party Politics at the Accession of Queen Anne

Joseph Hone

Oxford University Press

Chapter 3 addresses the hitherto neglected political dimension of Anne’s first royal progress to Oxford and the West Country. The contention of this chapter is that the sophisticated rhetorical displays and entertainments associated with Elizabethan progresses persisted into the eighteenth century. By unpicking the partisan messages embedded into entertainments and verse addresses performed to Anne on her first progress, the chapter demonstrates how royal hosts attempted to guide the queen and government on policy matters. But they also hoped to garner patronage from prominent local and national politicians. Anne also used the progress as an opportunity to revive older modes of sacral monarchy.
