(p.140) Chapter 4 Identity, Honor, and Gender in the Narratives of Informers
A Plague of Informers

Rachel Weil

Yale University Press

This chapter examines the narratives of different informers, asking how the act defined the informer’s sense of self and relations with others. It first considers those informers who seem to have informed only once and about whom information is fragmentary. It then turns to two kinds of long-term “career” informers: those who maintained a consistent identity as zealous Williamites, and those (including Catholics, ex-Catholics, and prisoners) for whom informing was a means of transforming their identities.

Keywords:   Williamite regime, informants, self, identity
