    Breaking away from the usual portrayals of Robert Devereux, 2nd Earl of Essex, as Elizabeth I's favourite or as alluded to in Shakespeare's Henry V, this volume of twelve essays looks afresh at aspects of Essex's life and career within his cultural and political milieu. Among the topics discussed are his relationship with the theatre, his political views, the circulation of his texts, Ireland, and Lady Penelope Rich. No jacket.
