The texts, including facsimiles of period documents, conduct literature, county records, reports of court entertainments, and Queen Elizabeth?s speeches, contextualize the play?s treatment of popular and royal festivity, communities of women (including Amazons, gossips, and nuns), marriage expectations, and the supernatural." 100% customer satisfaction guaranteed.
