Abstract

King James is one of the most widely studied royal historical figures of the early modern period. This dissertation examines King James VI’s Daemonologie as it relates to the themes of masculinity and self-fashioning. By analysing James, through his demonological treatise, I illuminate James’s anxiety of the learned man and show his masking of that anxiety through textual self-fashioning as it appears in his Daemonologie.
