Festive and Subersive: Comic Perspectives in Renaissance Literature

To develop an approach to comic perspectives in Renaissance literature which cuts across generic lines to explore a tradition of the comic and the grotesque which has not been fully defined, and to examine individual works within that tradition. This kind of comedy often uses aggressive irony to challenge its audience's beliefs and values in a threatening, subversive and radical way, most of Shakespeare's history plays are in this category.
