Placing Shakespeare's masterpieces in the social and historical contexts of the period and examining them alongside the work of his lesser known contemporaries, the Companion provides detailed commentaries on a range of plays, and guides students through key literary theories and debates. Connecting texts with their scholarly and historical contexts, this is essential reading for any student of Renaissance drama.
