Criticism based on literary or formalist conceptions of structure or on the history of ideas, Robert Weimann contends, has removed Shakespeare from the theater, and the theater from society at large. ''It is only when Elizabethan society, theater, and language are seen as interrelated that the structure of Shakespeare''s dramatic art emerges as fully functional, that is, as part of a larger, and not only literary, whole.''

Editorial Reviews

A magnificent study... [that] illuminates the role of folk culture in medieval drama, especially in the cycle plays and moralities, and convincingly carries the tradition forward into Elizabethan drama... We are fortunate indeed to have this book.
