The Noise of Threatening Drum: Dramatic Strategy and Political Ideology in Shakespeare and the English Chronicle Plays (Google eBook)
This work focuses on thirteen English Renaissance plays: the Anonymous Famous Victories of Henry V and Edward III, the apocryphal plays Sir John Oldcastle and Thomas, Lord Cromwell, the pseudo-Shakespearean Edmund Ironside, and Shakespeare's 1, 2, 3 Henry VI, King John, Richard II, 1, 2 Henry IV, and Henry V. Discussed are the spectators in the socially mixed audience who responded differently, depending on individual political biases, and who had to be considered if the plays were to reach the stage.
