From the Publisher
"For students and general readers, Young (English, Brigham Young U.) describes family life during Shakespeare's time, to give readers a better understanding of his works and their context. He covers the development of family life from Ancient Greece and Rome up to the Renaissance, specific practices and attitudes, common misconceptions, and the importance
of family in social and political life. He then considers Shakespeare's uses of family in his poems and plays, as well as historical and contemporary Shakespearean productions, and scholarship and criticism. A selection of primary documents from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries are included, such as sermons, handbooks, legal documents, and ballads."
