Mothers and Meaning on the Early Modern English Stage is a study of the dramatised mother figure in English drama from the mid-sixteenth to the early seventeenth centuries. It explores a range of genres: moralities, histories, romantic comedies, city comedies, domestic tragedies, high tragedies, romances and melodrama and includes close readings of plays by such diverse dramatists as Udall, Bale, Phillip, Legge, Kyd, Marlowe, Peele, Shakespeare, Middleton, Dekker and Webster. The study is enriched by reference to religious, political and literary discourses of the period, from Reformation and counter-Reformation polemic to midwifery manuals and Mother's Legacies, the political rhetoric of Mary I, Elizabeth I and James VI, reported gallows confessions of mother convicts and Puritan conduct books. It thus offers scholars of literature, drama, art and history a unique opportunity to consider the literary, visual and rhetorical representation of motherhood in the context of a discussion of familiar and less familiar dramatic texts.

This study of Shakespeares Falstaff versus Shakespeare Criticism takes a view of Falstaff that is critically unorthodox but which is supported by the text. This reading of the Falstaff plays sees the playwright basing his fiction on natural law, but bending natural law to present a world of personified natural phenomena. This reading is logically consistent, and conforms to all fictional requirements for necessity and probability, thus eliminating the supposed errors that criticism, which sees the plays as strictly realistic vehicles, appears to find in these plays.
