This is a collection of newly-commissioned essays by established scholars, responding to recent critical debate on political theatre of the turbulent early years of the seventeenth century. Addressing a wide range of theatre texts from the period between the accession of James I and the Civil War, the authors draw on criticism by both new historicists and cultural materialists.
