Dejar Angelica,
It may seem obvious, but *The Oxford Companion to Shakespeare *has a very
good entry for the play, with a brief yet illuminating section on stage
history. That might as well be a good starting point.

I am the eye with which the Universe
Beholds itself, and knows it is divine;
All harmony of instrument or verse,
All prophecy, all medicine, is mine,
All light of art or nature; - to my song
Victory and praise in its own right belong.

--P. B. Shelley
