Constituting Old Age in Early Modern English Literature, from Queen Elizabeth to King Lear

How did Shakespeare and his contemporaries, whose works mark the last quarter century of Elizabeth I's reign as one of the richest moments in all of English literature, regard and represent old age? Was late life seen primarily as a time of withdrawal and preparation for death, as scholars and historians have traditionally maintained? In this book, Martin examines how, contrary to received impressions, writers and thinkers of the era contested such prejudicial and dismissive social attitudes.
