Focusing on five of Shakespeare's plays ( The Comedy of Errors , Titus Andronicus , Richard III , Measure for Measure , and The Tempest ), Mitchell (theater, Loyola College) investigates Shakespeare's treatment of capital punishment, looking at the relationship between the ruling class and the common people in the plays and the complexities that a single invocation of the gallows can provoke. Appendices offer lists of plays known to be drawn from famous murders and executions, and selected titles of goodnight ballads in circulation during Shakespeare's career.
