Shakespeare's Legal & Political Background
A contribution to Shakespeare scholarship and legal history
First edition, first impression. Hardback in dustwrapper. 22 × 14.5cm, viii + 417pp.
"In this book the author attempts to analyse the manner in which Shakespeare employed the language of the law in his plays and the connection between his treatment of legal problems and this treatment of political ideas. Shakespeare's legal and political knowledge was part of the intellectual equipment of all the Elizabethan writers but his observation was closer and more accurate, and his touch more sensitive."
The book is in very good condition, the dustwrapper a little faded to the spine but otherwise very good.
