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.
