    Abstract:
    Uses the survival of the English chivalric romance tradition throughout Shakespeare's professional lifetime and his exploitation of that tradition especially in his major tragedies to challenge the commonplace distinction between the medieval and the renaissance on the one hand, and to suggest that his openness to that medieval tradition showed him far more accepting of the past than anticipating the modern.
