Abstract [en]

This paper argues that the the frequent occurrences of prayers in Christs TearesOver Jerusalem (1593) constitute an expression of Nashe's own liminal positionas a writer, specifically in the context of the hostile audience reactions that thework provoked. Prayers for comfort from the Lord function as acts ofempowerment for the author and furnish a position of "mourning" fromwhich Nashe constructs his authorial persona. While the paper thus revisitssome of the more recent scholarship on Nashe and authorship, it provides anew angle in exploring the specific role of post-reformation religious beliefand ritual in the development of authorial role models. Moreover, itcontributes to the ways in which Christs Teares can be understood as a central,rather than marginal text in Nashe's oeuvre as a whole.
