Abstract:

In this essay, the author contrasts The Troublesome Raigne of John (1591) and Shakespeare's King John. He argues that Shakespeare makes the religious issue all important by showing us how a corrupting by "commodity" underlies the troubles of King John and his times - and by implication those of the 16th century also.
