Nicholas Breton (1545/55-1626?) was one of the most prolific writers of the Early Modern period and left behind a vast oeuvre that is, however, largely neglected today. Breton addresses instrumental questions of his time, especially those of man's identity. This study concentrates on a selection of Breton's political texts in which Breton contrasts the Self against the Other. These texts not only stigmatise the Other as the undesired, the unknown and the indecipherable, but also construct a patriotic and uniform English identity to be imitated by all Englishmen and Englishwomen: the English Self.
