About the book:

This study looks at society's attitude to war as mediated through the visual and performing arts and literature in the 16th century. The essays, by a range of contributors across many disciplines, illustrate how painting, music, theatre and creative and autobiographical writing seek to reconcile heroic conceptions of war with moral objections and actual experience. The study focuses on the late Renaissance in France, Germany, Italy, Spain and England when the theme was particularly prevalent. J.R. Mulryne is general editor of "The Revels Plays" and "Shakespeare's Plays in Performance". He has also written books on Middleton, Webster and W.B. Yeats. M.Shewring is co-editor of "Renaissance Drama Newsletter.
