About this book

Staged Transgression in Shakespeare's England is a groundbreaking collection of seventeen essays, drawing together leading and emerging scholars to discuss and challenge critical assumptions about the transgressive nature of the early modern English stage. These essays shed new light on issues of gender, race, sexuality, law and politics.

Reviews

"Wisely, the editors have not grouped the essays according to categories that one might expect in a book on transgression (race, gender, politics, etc), thereby leaving the reader free to make their own connections in a series of essays well worth reading in their entirety... Scrutinizing different transgressive behaviour produces some fresh insights into familiar plays throughout... overall a very rich, intelligent and rewarding book." Sarah Dustagheer, The Review of English Studies
