Summary
"Putting History to the Question is the result of Neill's ongoing investigation of how literature provides a revealing portrait of nation, social order, and empire, and how the flow of literary discourse affects the progress of history. Covering dramatic works by Shakespeare, John Fletcher, Philip Massinger, and others - and reflecting upon subjects rangings from social attitudes toward racial difference and adultery to the politics of mercantilism and the hierarchy of master/servant relationships - the book reenergizes the discussion of Renaissance drama and history." "For the many scholars and students accustomed to reading from photocopies of Neill's writings. Putting History to the Question will be a valuable addition to the critical library."--Jacket
