schema:description"The author pays substantial attention to the intersections between gender and ideologies of rank, and how these produced a range of political effects in the plays he explores; the study incorporates innovative work on the role of carnival structures and gender bonding in creating pan-class communities. Ivan Canadas provides not only literary analysis of individual plays, but also insight into the sociology of theater as an institution."--Jacket."@en

The primary focus of this study is the drama of Shakespeare and some of his contemporaries, particularly Thomas Dekker, in England, and the peasant honor plays of Lope de Vega in Spain. In engaging with these works, the study explores the representation of social conflict in the public drama of the two countries, and highlights the polyphonic appeal that the drama held for the mixed audiences of the public theaters, a communal phenomenon in which discourses of class, gender and race intersected."
