Shakespeare Recycled: The Making of Historical Drama

Cover
Rowman & Littlefield, 1992 - 259 Seiten
This exercise in reading Shakespeare's history plays as history sets out to challenge Tillyard's view that the plays may be read as historical evidence for the providence-driven theory of history and as defences of Tudor legitimacy, but are negligible as works of history.
