Overview


Oxford Shakespeare Topics provides students, teachers, and interested readers with short books on important aspects of Shakespeare criticism and scholarship. Each book is written by an authority in its field, and combines accessible style with original discussion of its subject. Notes and a critical guide to further reading equip the interested reader with the means to broaden research.

William Shakespeare lived and worked during an extraordinary quarter-century in the history of English drama, which saw the development of new kinds of tragedy and comedy, and the birth of the entirely new genre of tragicomedy. Beginning with the institutional foundations that were laid with the emergence of the commercial theater business in 1570s London, Shakespeare and the Drama of His Time describes the principal audience fashions, artistic conventions, and professional circumstances which defined, and enabled, his remarkable plays and those of his colleagues. Throughout, Shakespeare's plays are shown to be intimately associated with those of his contemporaries, notably Christopher Marlowe, Thomas Kyd, George Chapman, Ben Jonson, John Marston, and John Fletcher.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Here is an ingenious thesis concerning the use of drama during what the author calls 'the volatile moments of transition' in the Tudor and Stuart monarchy from 1535 to 1642... [A]ccurate and interesting." --The Heythrop Journal

"Manages a delicate balance between historical accuracy and ideas with compelling reference to the twenty-first centurya fascinating discussion of what dictates a play's content. This book makes you think about the inherent pleasures of fiction and why we now insist that those pleasures be 'original'.... Gloriously informed and pugnaciously informative."-Renaissance Quarterly
