The studies in this volume cover all aspects of Shakespearian scholarship. It begins with Shakespeare's biography, describes the theatres and companies of the time, and analyses Shakespeare's dramatic and poetic genius. There are also studies of his work in relation to the English spoken at the time, his use and knowledge of music, and his sources. Other essays cover the national and social background. A final group touches on the text of the plays, Shakespearian criticism and scholarship, and Shakespeare in the theatre.
