(p.171) Conclusion
Circumstantial Shakespeare

Lorna Hutson

Oxford University Press

This chapter restates the book’s argument that the imagined dramatic world is an innovative achievement in sixteenth-century drama, and that it is the achievement not of performance conditions but of rhetorical invention. More particularly, the imagined dramatic world is the achievement of the invention of arguments out of topics of circumstance. The conclusion links the technical arguments of the book’s earlier chapters to the final chapter’s political reading of Macbeth.

Keywords:   imagined dramatic world, rhetorical invention, circumstances
