Description

The most important period in the history of English drama is revealed in Alexander Leggatt's challenging account.

The author considers English drama from the beginning of Shakespeare's career to the restoration of Charles II.

Focusing on Shakespeare and the development of his art, he examines all his major contemporaries: Jonson, Middleton, Webster, Beaumont, Fletcher and Ford.

He combines close analysis of specific plays with a broader look at trends within drama.
