Little Ease

A narrow place of confinement; specifically, the name of a dungeon cell in the White Tower (286). The cell is reportedly so small that the prisoner can neither stand up nor lie down. Guy Fawkes is thought to have spent fifty days there after trying to blow up the Houses of Parliament (47). Wilson (319), however, avers that no one has ever proven that such a cell actually existed within the Tower.
