Notes

Reviews
Dobson, Michael. Shakespeare Survey 57 (2004), pp. 258-89 (especially 269); Jackson, Russell. Shakespeare Quarterly 55 (2004), pp. 177-99 (in review-article).

Billington, Michael, The Guardian (5 May, 2003) Billington writes’.... But, in implying that church and state are inherently corrupt, it seems closer to the cynicism of Graham Greene than to the complexity of Shakespeare’s version of the Sermon on the Mount.'
