The law is in our lives since the 22nd century BC, when a Sumerian ruler Ur-Nammu created the first law code
which consisted of casuistic statements. Since then, every society happened to create their on laws in order to live in
ordonnance and security, which would bring justice to their lives. For Plato, justice is an asset establishing rational
order, with each part performing its appropriate role and not interfering with the proper functioning of other parts.
Shakespeare scholars regularly encounter social justice issues in the material that we study and teach. Most often in the classroom our engagement with such issues takes the form of thematic identification and critical parsing. Yet we struggle to form more direct, material connections between coursework and social justice work. This book is for professors of early modern literature who want to heighten the intellectual impact of their courses by thoughtfully using their classrooms as laboratories for social formation and action.
