    schema:reviewBody ""This is an unusual study of the nature of service and other types of dependency and patronage in Shakespeare's drama. By considering the close associations of service with childhood or youth, marriage and friendship, Judith Well sheds new light on social practice and dramatic action. Approached as dynamic explorations of a familiar custom, the plays are shown to demonstrate a surprising consciousness of obligations and a fascination with how dependants actively change each other. They help us understand why early modern people may have found service both frightening and enabling. Attentive to a range of historical sources and to social and cultural issues, Will also emphasizes the linguistic ambiguities created by service relationships and their rich potential for interpretation on the stage. The book presents close readings of dramatic sequences in twelve plays, including Hamlet, Macbeth, The Taming of the Shrew, and King Lear."--Jacket." ;
