About this book
In this addition to the English Dramatist Series, Kathleen McLuskie uses the work of Dekker and Heywood to investigate the relationship between plays and the cultural moment into which they are produced. As professional playwrights, Dekker and Heywood debated and constructed the categories of popular theatre and engaged over a long period with the changing politics of culture, religion and state. Their work, and this book, provide an important insight into the working context of Shakespeare and two of his most important contemporaries.
