Question from Loredana - School paper on Essex Rebellion

At school I have this question about Earl of Essex Rebellion is a interpretation and i must to write how convincing is ... So the interpretation is like this : "When Elizabeth refused to renew [Essexs] patent (monopoly) of sweet wines.his credit structure collapsed. She had effectively condemned him to a life of poverty.Yet Essexs motivation went beyond this. A faction leader who was denied access to a monarch was an untenable positionAfter his disgrace, his urge to oust the Cecilian upstartsbecame obsessional."

Someone to help me . please .
Thank you !

You've undoubtedly written and turned in your paper but being from the US I wasn't familiar with the rebellion so I did a little ,(very little) research.
I found that www.historyindeed.wordpress.com/the-essex-rebellion came up with several conclusions about its causes but more about how it's failure showed how much the social and economic structure had become much more stable in a widespread way.
Earlier rebellions would have gained much more traction because finding numerous disgruntled people with no investment in the status quo would have been relatively easy.

I also found www.newulmtel.net/~dckay/know6.html, an analysis of the Devereaux Papers a collection of documents of the time.
Also www.rebellionsa2.blogspot.com/2009/11/essex-1601.html citing the influence of James of Scotland but more the workings of Cecil against him.
I'd love to know what you came up with for your paper.
