Yet he himself is not without guilt; the real world has a claim upon him as ruler, which claim he has totally ignored.

    The broad premise of The Art of Law in Shakespeare is that the 'artificial reason' of law was a complex art form that shared the same rhetorical strategy as the plays of Shakespeare.
