Politics of the Stuart Court Masque by David Bevington
Book DescriptionThis 1998 book takes an alternative look at the courtly masque in early seventeenth-century England. For a generation, the masque has been a favourite topic of New Historicism, because it has been seen as part of the process by which artistic works interact with politics, both shaping and reflecting the political life of a nation. These exciting essays move importantly beyond a monolithic view of culture and power in the production of masques, to one in which rival factions at the courts of James I and of Charles I represent their clash of viewpoints through dancing and spectacle. All aspects of the masque are considered, from written text and political context to music, stage picture and dance. The essays, written by distinguished scholars from around the world, present an interdisciplinary approach, with experts on dance, music, visual spectacle and politics all addressing the masque from the point of view of their speciality.

Troublesome Reign of John, King of England, Paperback (June 2016)
A much needed, fully annotated and modernized text of a long neglected play used by Shakespeare as the principal basis of King John. Published anonymously in 1591, it can now be attributed definitively to Peele and ranks as the most important Elizabethan history play after Shakespeare and Marlowe's Edward II.
Lady's Trial, Paperback (September 2015)» View all books by David Bevington
The first scholarly edition of a little-known play by a major Renaissance playwright, which interestingly reworks Othello.
