Abstract

This collection of essays stems from the one-day "Shakespeare and his Contemporaries Graduate Conference" organised in Florence on 23 April 2015 by the British Institute of Florence and the Italian Association of Shakespearean and Early Modern Studies, and subtitled "Humour in Shakespeare's Arcadia: Gender, Genre and Wordplay in Early Modern Comedy". The (double-blind peer-reviewed) contributions collected in this volume illustrate the use of humour in a variety of early modern British texts, where wordplay interacts with satire, where touches of critique, though often indirect, also attack social injustices, public evils and courtly power.
