Summary
"In this new collection, leading scholars analyze Shakespeare's plays to show how they shape issues arising from the interpretation of statute and common law as well as respond to new ideas of contract, the rights of subordinates, and the demands of the market. These essays explore what happens to law when it is rendered in fiction, illustrating the complementary relations between play text and legal text, between the dramatization of conflicts on stage and their discursive renderings in the words of the law."--BOOK JACKET
