There is a short extraordinary book with this title, written by E.M.W. Tillard. I highly recommend it to those of you who are interested either in the history of the times or the commonly held cultural beliefs expressed in Shakespeare's plays. It is a challenging book for high school students, but a book nearly always used in college level Shakespeare courses. I highly recommend it to you. I believe we have a few copies of it it our school library. Don't be daunted by the vast knowledge and scholarship of the author. Commit yourself to reading at least the first chapter and it will open your eyes to latent English Renaissance content in Shakespeare's play in a most miraculous manner! In so doing, it will improve your understanding of what you are reading.
