Further, it tells us something about Spenser's subtlety and diplomacy that his various patrons did not get along with each other: Grey resented Ralegh for undercutting him with the Privy Council. Ralegh and Essex were frequently at odds. Spenser, it must be concluded, had as much tact as wit. The academic discourses in Familiar Letters , as Harvey later confided in Foure Letters (1592), had to do

are abandoned in the hasty flight of Malcolm and Donalbain to England and Ireland, a flight which becomes a diplomatic mission to raise troops for Malcolm’s reentry into Scotland.

This meant that the opportunities to display military strength were fewer and social promotion had come to depend increasingly upon diplomacy, learning and trade, rather than bravery on the battlefield. 6 In 1595 John Smithe noted with regret the

The indifference that the Plebeians displayed in Székely’s initial non-rebellion opened on to a world where all were tainted by the morally compromised state in which they existed. Any between-the-lines political content to be read in this melancholy world was to be found in the production’s coding of public ceremony in resolutely anti-triumphalist terms; war, diplomacy

self-marginalized malcontent. The Old Hamlet’s pride in the warrior culture he inhabits, gambling his country on the outcome of single combat, is replaced by the sensible diplomacy of Claudius, who in dispatching Voltemand and Cornelius to Norway, seems to have preserved peace for Denmark. Modern kingship has started to impose order on a lawless and anarchic kingdom. The tragedy is in fact precipitated
