This monograph approaches the play in the context of Shakespeare's life and works, exploring its relation to the sonnets and the "problem plays" and providing an illuminating survey of possible source-materials. In the second half he discusses the content of the play: the text itself, the plot, main characters, themes and textures. Full chapters are devoted to the play in production and to some of the many critical approaches - Christian, structuralist, political and feminist - which the play has provoked.
