This study of an extraordinary work of dramatic literature also addresses questions of the nature and dissemination of the scientific revolution. These facets are locked together: although the book does not deny that 'The Tempest' had deep roots in classical literature and elsewhere, it maintains that the play's remarkable dramaturgy and symbolism reflect subtle matters uniquely pertinet to its own fascinating time. A 'Brave New World of Knowledge' uncovers a number of previously little-appreciated connections of 'The Tempest' with specific problems or advances of knowledge, thus showing that the play reflected innovative proto-scientific modes of confronting the physical, biological, and human realms. It also argues that Shakespeare's play mirrored a new tendency to repudiate earlier Renaissance dreams of achieving omniscience and omnipotence. The play reflected a newer hope for knowledge based on speculative boldness linked with close observation, rational and sober precision, and a radical capacity to accept limitation and not-knowing.

John Kenyon's scholarly biography of Sunderland is widely regarded as an unsurpassed classic both on its subject and for the penetrating insights it provides into the turbulent decades at the end of the 17th century. Sutherland, one of the prickliest characters on the contemporary political stage, was one of the era's great survivors and came to exert considerable influence on the policies adopted by three successive monarchs. He was at the very heart of the major constitutional and religious upheaval which centred on the Glorious revolution, and gradually came to shoulder responsibility for political and religious decisions way above his station.
