Using the Devil with Courtesy analyses Renaissance forms of (im)politeness through Shakespeare. Adopting a historical pragmatic perspective drawing in particular on Brown and Levinson (1987), Jucker (2010) and Culpeper (2011), the book focuses specifically on Hamlet (c. 1601) and The Taming of the Shrew (c. 1594).
