About the Authors
  • This new edition of Shakespeare's Cymbeline considers the critical and historical scholarship released in the late twentieth century. It highlights the play's elements of romance, tragicomedy and Jacobean stagecraft and acknowledges the postmodern indeterminacy of its key moments. Martin Butler departs from the legacy of the sentimental Victorian interpretation of the heroine, Innogen, and focuses on the politics of 1610, especially regarding uestions of British union and nationhood.

    • Cymbeline's popularity on the increase after fallow period: recent successful RSC production
    • Modern reading of the play's romance elements and its politics
    • Detailed commentary on the play's language and full treatment of its stage history, from 1610 to the present day
