2002 0-7734-6856-0
Studies early 17th century dramatic themes, characters, and rhetoric in relation to recent advances made in understanding Milton, Machiavelli, and political theory in general as it developed after Elizabeth I’s death. It provides a vital and long-neglected connection between the revenge drama so popular after Elizabeth’s death and the political atmosphere of dissent that led to Charles I’s beheading.
