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

Editorial Reviews

"This valuable collection does more than break new ground; it also surveys territory already traversed, reassessing earlier debates in light of more recent thinking .... a volume that is unusually rich in its coverage, its quality, and its capacity to stimulate thought." Robert Evans, Comparative Drama
