Shakespeare’s England is written and maintained by Dr Victoria Buckley.
My doctoral research explores the impact of terror and terrorism on the Jacobean stage, with particular reference to the linguistic and symbolic memes adopted by Shakespeare and his contemporary playwrights following the failed Gunpowder Plot of 1605. It is pending publication.
I’ve been blogging at Shakespeare’s England for four years. The blog was born out of my doctoral research, essentially as a place to share all the intriguing early modern texts I discovered along the way; texts which had perhaps no direct relation to my research, but nevertheless shed fascinating light onto life in sixteenth and seventeenth century England. I’m currently working on several book projects related to the period.
