Shakespeare in London offers a lively and engaging new reading of some of Shakespeare's major plays to challenge the received tradition that Shakespeare did not write about early modern London - the city in which he lived and wrote. The focus of the book is Shakespeare's London, how it influenced his drama and how he represents it on stage. Informed by close attention to the language of his plays and the social history of early modern London, each chapter focuses on one play and one key location, drawing out the thematic connections between that place and the drama it underwrites.
