Subject:        Genre in Early Modern England

Mr. Clark might peruse Lawrence Danson's latest,  _Shakespeare's
Dramatic Genres_ (2000). It's an entry in the Oxford Shakespeare Topic
Series, and it's a survey of Renaissance belief and disbelief in the
efficacy of generic divisions. Survey or no, it sounds perfectly suited
to your interest, and I thought it was a very lively and comprehensive
study.

Annabel Patterson's Reading Holinshed's Chronicles (Chicago UP, 1994)
may help with the "history" part of your question.
