A ground-breaking study of William Shakespeare's political, cultural, religious and social environment 1564 to c. 1590, based on recently discovered archival evidence, and the contextual reinterpretation of previously known evidence about that environment. We connect the wider context with the experiences of Shakespeare's family, their friends and neighbours, and point to the implications for his creative life of the intrusion of central government into the local context.
