Summary note:
This handbook presents a broad sampling of current historical scholarship on Shakespeare's period that it is hoped will prove useful to scholars of his poems and plays. Rather than attempting to summarize the historical `background' to Shakespeare, individual chapters explore numerous topics and methodologies at the forefront of current historical research.
