Until recently, literary scholars have not generally treated Shakespeare as a participant in the political thought of his time, unlike his contemporaries Ben Jonson, Edmund Spenser and Philip Sidney. At the same time, historians of political thought have rarely turned their attention to major works of poetry and drama. A distinguished international and interdisciplinary team of contributors examines the full range of Shakespeares writings in order to challenge conventional interpretations of plays central to the canon, such as Hamlet- open up novel perspectives on works rarely considered to be political, such as the Sonnets- and focus on those that have been largely neglected, such as The Merry Wives of Windsor.

The result is a coherent and challenging portrait of Shakespeares distinctive engagement with the characteristic questions of early modern political thought.
