Description

This accessible and interdisciplinary volume addresses a fundamental need in current education in language, literature and drama.

Many of today's students lack the grammatical and linguistic skills to enable them to study Shakespearean and other Renaissance texts as closely as their courses require.

This practical guide will help them to understand and use the structures and strategies of written and dramatic language.

Eleven short essays on aspects of literary criticism and performance by an eminent team of contributors are followed by a more detailed exploration of the history of language use, grammar and spelling, plus a glossary of terms offering definitions, contexts and examples.

Together these provide an informed and engaging historical understanding of dramatic language in the early modern period.
