Subject:        Undergraduate Guide to Reading Shakespeare Historically

Friends,

Can anyone recommend a text suitable for senior undergraduates that
outlines key issues in the historical study of Shakespeare? I'm
imagining a book with chapters that connect Shakespeare to, for example,
the monarchy, the structure of the aristocracy, early capitalism, the
early modern construction of gender, and so on -- but at a level that
undergraduates could make sense of and use as a basis for their own
research essays.

Any suggestions on or off list would be welcome.

Best,
t
