Early Modern English Drama: A Critical Companion is a collection of 27 contributed introductory essays on individual plays from the early modern period. Each essay, written by an authoritative scholar, addresses not only a play, but a specific cultural or literary epic, from London to the law, servants to sovereigns, geography to religion. These essays cover vital perspectives in current cultural studies such as issues in race, class, gender, sexuality and colonialism as well as topics in intellectual history like humanism, science, the law, and reformation theology, and in the dramatic genre. Including authors and works most often taught in college and university courses, this volume is an ideal supplement to both primary texts and anthologies of Renaissance Drama.

Review quote

"The essays are admirably succinct, so should not prove offputting to students, and they are all newly written by very distinguished contributors who have done previous fine work on the play on which they write here. This is a very useful collection, and one which I will not hesitate to recommend to students."--Notes and Queries
