"Alvin Kernan addresses this point well in his book on the Jacobean
Shakespeare and the Court of James--sorry, can't recall the exact
title-- "

Shakespeare, the King's Playwright: Theater in the Stuart Court
1603-1613. New Haven: Yale University Press 1995

Didn't think that much of it, myself. Try Goldberg's book instead.
