King John: New Perspectives
Deborah T. Curren-Aquino
University of Delaware Press, 1989 - Literary Criticism - 205 pages
Illuminating Shakespeare's complex experimentation with the dramatic genre of history, these twelve essays bring such time-honored critical methods as source study and concentration on genre, imagery and language, theme, and character together with more current techniques based on historiography, the new historicism, feminism, pragmatics, performance history, and perspectivism.
