Breitenberg returns to, and deepens, our understanding of early modern masculinity through a study of selected texts. His thesis is that 'masculinity is inherently anxious' in the period precisely because of the gendered inequality upon which patriarchal social and institutional structures are built. The book recognises that early modern gender anxiety is primarily a 'social rather than psychic phenomenon' and so deals with the performative nature of gendered identity. The essay on Othello, sexual jealousy, and the idea of women as texts is particularly well-conceived.

Fisher (2001) argues that in early modern England beards became a central aspect of the elite Renaissance male and that the beard was so important that boys may have been regarded as a distinct gender between the mid-sixteenth and the midseventeenth century but that manipulations of gender signaling were possible on the theatrical stage and elsewhere.

To recent studies of Renaissance subjectivity, Anxious Masculinity in Early Modern England contributes the argument that masculinity is unavoidably anxious and volatile in cultures that distribute power and authority according to patriarchal prerogatives. Drawing from current arguments in feminism, cultural studies, historicism, psychoanalysis and gay studies, Mark Breitenberg explores the dialectic of desire and anxiety in masculine subjectivity in the work of a wide range of writers, including Shakespeare, Bacon, Burton, and the women writers of the "querelles des femmes" debate, especially Jane Anger. Breitenberg discusses jealousy and cuckoldry anxiety, hetero and homoerotic desire, humoural psychology, anatomical difference, cross-dressing and the idea of honor and reputation. He traces masculine anxiety both as a sign of ideological contradiction and, paradoxically, as a productive force in the perpetuation of Western patriarchal systems.
