Subject:        Interpretation of History Plays...

E. M. W. Tillyard in 1944 wrote an interpretation of the history plays
that stresses the Tudor myth, the great chain of being and the
Elizabethan world view.  Can someone explain why this is today so
discredited?  How could a mode of interpretation change so quickly?
