Summary
"Covering a wide variety of dramatic texts and performances from 1550 to 1600, including Shakespeare's second tetralogy, this book explores moral, historical, and comic plays as contributions to Elizabethan debates on Anglo-foreign relations in England. Aliens and Englishness reads a body of plays that represents Englishness as a state of ideological, invented superiority - paradoxically stable in its constant changeability, and brought into being by incorporating and eventually even celebrating, rather than rejecting, the alien."--Jacket
