One more thing

Guy Fawkes wanted to usurp a Protestant Theocracy and put a Catholic Theocracy in its place, people.  He was hardly a subversive anarchist who yearned for a Libertarian/Libertine Utopia, and, one thing is for damn sure, his ideal regime would have hardly been welcoming to Lesbian Romances.   It's "Remember, remember..." and not "Re-write, re-write to conform to the Revolutionary Delusions of Arrested Adolescence."

And it should be noted that Fawkes and his fellow Gunpowder Plotters were singularly stupid,  They let the powder they were intending to use to blow up Parliament sit in a dark, dripping cellar for months and months and months.  They would have had more success if they tried to poison the parliamentarians with moldy cheese.

Had Fawkes & Co. poisoned the parliamentarians with moldy cheese, that would have given the poets something to wax poetic over. Alas, “Poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese.” ― G.K. Chesterton, from the essay Cheese, Alarms and Discursions
