This book presents an array of contexts that operated in Shakespeare’s plays.

Product Description


These include ideas about kingship and authority; gender roles; prejudices, antipathies and stereotypes regarding national, racial, gender or ethnic identities; views about the world outside England, or about the classical world; and the world of the theatre, among many others. The book analyses how these contexts are reflected, examined, interrogated and sometimes subverted, in Shakespeare’s plays.
