Ballads and Performance: The Multimodal Stage in Early Modern England

"'Greensickness carrion’: Re-reading Capulet through Broadside Ballads"

See for example John Pechey, A General Treatise of the Diseases of Maids, Bigbellied Women, Child-Bed-Women, and Widows Together with the Best Methods of Preventing or Curing the Same (London: Printed for Henry Bonwick, 1696), 13–14. Pechey claims that greensickness “is easily cured by Marriage in young virgins.”
