Doubting Thomas: the Dought(ie) Affair in Fictive History and Historical Fiction
Thomas Doughtie

Sabrina L. Caine:

Notes:My credentials are in English language and literature; this article combines both historical research and an analysis of how the history becomes textually represented in works of both fiction and supposed nonfiction. I have adhered to the principles of sound academic research; nevertheless, I would appreciate any comments as to how this article might be improved according to the standards of historical scholarship.

Abstract: The execution of Thomas Doughty has long been regarded as a shadow upon the reputation of Sir Francis Drake, but little attention has been paid to Doughty outside of the context of Drake’s life. The current paper examines in depth the narrative of Thomas Doughty from his point of view: first as a man in his own right before his encounter with Drake, then an analysis of the circumstances ultimately leading to his trial and execution – an analysis which has been conducted by many biographers of Drake, but always with the idea of vindicating or condemning Drake, and never with the idea of understanding Doughty in the light of his own experiences, and finally an examination of the surprisingly considerable body of literature depicting the Doughty affair in fiction, poetry and media.
