Shakespeare, Catholicism, and Romance, Hardback Book


This book assesses William Shakespeare in the context of political and religious crisis, paying particular attention to his Catholic connections, which have heretofore been underplayed by much Protestant interpretation.

Bourgeois Richmond's most important contribution is to study the genre of romance in its guise as a `cover' for recusant Catholicism, drawing on a long tradition of medieval-religious plays devoted to the propagation of Catholic religious faith.
