This re-creation of Shakespeare's Cymbeline considers the serious and old scholarship published within the past due 20th century. It highlights the play's components of romance, tragicomedy and Jacobean stagecraft and recognizes the postmodern indeterminacy of its key moments. Martin Butler departs from the legacy of the sentimental Victorian interpretation of the heroine, Innogen, and makes a speciality of the politics of 1610, particularly concerning uestions of British union and nationhood.
