Theatre and Religion by Richard Dutton

Book Description

This important collection of essays focuses on the place of Roman Catholicism in early modern England, bringing new perspectives to bear on whether Shakespeare himself was Catholic. In the Introduction, Richard Wilson reviews the history of the debate over Shakespeare's religion, while Arthur Marotti and Peter Milward offer current perspectives on the subject. Eamon Duffy offers a historian's view of the nature of Elizabethan Catholicism, complemented by Frank Brownlow's study of Elizabeth's most brutal enforcer of religious policy, Richard Topcliffe. Two key Catholic controversialists are addressed by Donna Hamilton (Richard Vestegan) and Jean-Christophe Mayer (Robert Parsons). Robert Miola opens up the neglected field of Jesuit drama in the period, whilst Sonia Fielitz specifically proposes a new, Jesuit source-text for Timon of Athens. Carol Enos (As You Like It), Margaret Jones-Davies (Cymbeline), Gerard Kilroy (Hamlet) and Randall Martin (Henry VI 3) read individual plays in the light of these questions, while Gary Taylor's essay fittingly investigates the possible influence of religious conflicts on the publication of the Shakespeare First Folio. Theatre and religion: Lancastrian Shakespeare as a whole represents a major intervention in this fiercely contested current debate.

Books By Author Richard Dutton

Troublesome Reign of John, King of England by Richard Dutton 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.

Shakespeare, Court Dramatist by Richard Dutton Shakespeare, Court Dramatist, Hardback (April 2016)

Shakespeare, Court Dramatist outlines the symbiotic relationship between Shakespeare and the court and shows how it affected his writing, forging plays like Romeo and Juliet and Hamlet into the versions we know best today.

Lady's Trial by Richard Dutton Lady's Trial, Paperback (September 2015)

The first scholarly edition of a little-known play by a major Renaissance playwright, which interestingly reworks Othello.

Love's Metamorphosis by Richard Dutton Love's Metamorphosis, Paperback (June 2015)

Lyly's most elegantly structured play, newly edited from the quarto of 1601
