The Oxford Handbook to Tudor Drama is the authoritative secondary text on Tudor drama. It both integrates recent important research across different disciplines and periods and sets a new agenda for the future study of Tudor drama, questioning a number of the central assumptions of previous studies. Balancing the interests and concerns of scholars in theatre history, drama, and literary studies, its scope reflects the broad reach of Tudor drama as a subject, inviting readers to see the Tudor century as a whole, rather than made up of artificial and misleading divisions between 'medieval' and 'renaissance', religious and secular, pre- and post-Shakespeare. The contributors, both the established leaders in their fields and the brightest young scholars, attend to the contexts, intellectual, theatrical and historical within which drama was written, produced and staged in this period, and ask us to consider afresh this most vital and complex of periods in theatre history. The book is divided into four sections: Religious Drama; Interludes and Comedies, Entertainments, Masques, and Royal Entries; and Histories and political dramas.

MEDIA REVIEWS
provides an exhaustive overview of a period of Renaissance drama that many of us probably know less about than we'd care to admit. Covering the period from 1485 to 1603, the volume includes thirty-eight essays on religious drama; interludes and comedies; entertainments, masques, and royal entries; and histories and political dramas. * Kevin Curran, Studies in English Literature 1500-1900 *
stimulating and provocative * Lucy Munro, The Times Literary Supplement *
The book is essential for students of English Renaissance drama and experienced scholars will also find ground-breaking material here. * Frank Swannack, Parergon *
