This collection of essays looks at the social criticism of such authors as Middleton, Webster, Massinger, Ford, John Fletcher, as well as considering the activities of the Actors' Companies and the production of Latin plays. Political criticism is found in the form of allusion in the tragedies, while the comedies are seen as mocking the shortcomings of the professional, middle and lower classes, some of the satire being directed against the way of speaking of the characters depicted.
