About the Authors
  • Douglas Bruster's provocative study of English Renaissance drama explores its links with Elizabethan and Jacobean economy and society, looking at the status of playwrights such as Shakespeare and the establishment of commercial theatres. He identifies in the drama a materialist vision which has its origins in the climate of uncertainty engendered by the rapidly expanding economy of London. His examples range from the economic importance of cuckoldry to the role of stage props as commodities, and the commercial significance of the Troy story in Shakespeare's Troilus and Cressida, and he offers new ways of reading English Renaissance drama, by returning the theatre and the plays performed there, to its basis in the material world.

    • First book in new series, establishing profile of trendy studies focusing on literature's cultural and material contexts in the Renaissance
    • Theatre history element (like Gurr's The Shakespearean Stage and Playgoing in Shakespeare's London, or books by Orrell) - books in this area have done well
    • Combines drama with social and economic history
