Paul Raffield

Raffield continues his exploration of political, constitutional, and juridical developments in Elizabethan and Jacobian England and their reflection in Shakespeare's plays. He covers "fie, painted rhetoric!" common law, satire, and the language of the beast; princes set upon stages: Macbeth, treason, and the theater of law; The Winter's Tale: an art lawful as eating; Cymbeline: empire, nationhood, and the Jacobean Aeneid; and The Tempest: the island of law in Jacobean England.
