The distinctive voices of Renaissance playwrights can make a classroom come alive. This volume explores the compelling dramatic technique and rich language in a wide variety of well-known and less-familiar Renaissance plays. The essays collected here challenge teachers to help students, whose experience is usually limited to reading Shakespeare or seeing movie versions of his plays, see beyond the initial strangeness of Renaissance drama. A series of reading, performance, and research tools are outlined for teachers who wish to encourage students not only to understand the English Renaissance as a unique period of time but also to envision their own world from a fresh perspective.

Introduction to English Renaissance comedy explores the interconnected themes of politics, magic and sex in a number of representative comedies by Shakespeare and his contemporaries. It ranges across the Elizabethan, Jacobean and Caroline periods, covering both public and private theatres, emphasising the eclectic, experimental nature of this comedy: its departures from the mainstream New Comedy tradition, its searching, witty analysis of social and personal relations in court, city and country.This book offers not a broad general survey but a close analysis of some of the richest comedies of the period, making sometimes unexpected connections between them: Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream and The Tempest, Lyly's Endymion, Greene's Friar Bacon and Friar Bungay, Marston's The Malcontent, Middleton's Michaelmas Term, Jonson's Bartholomew Fair, Shirley's The Lady of Pleasure and Brome's A Jovial Crew. Through these plays the reader is given a comprehensive picture of English comedy in one of its most creative periods.The book is aimed at students and teachers of English and drama, and at general readers with an interest in theatre.

Beginning with the rape of Lavinia in Titus Andronicus, this book traces the linked themes of violation and identity through seven Shakespearean tragedies. The shock effects of Lavinia's rape reverberate throughout Shakespeare's later tragedies. This detailed study of Titus Andronicus, Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, Troilus and Cressida, Othello, King Lear and Macbeth reveals the way acts of violence evoke questions about the identities of the victims, perpetrators, and the acts themselves. Written in a clear, accessible style, it highlights the humanistic aspects of Shakespearean tragedy.
