Northwestern University Press, 1992 - Literary Criticism - 236 pages
Renaissance Drama, an annual and interdisciplinary publication, is devoted to drama and performance as a central feature of Renaissance culture. The essays in each volume explore traditional canons of drama, the significance of performance (broadly construed) to early modern culture, and the impact of new forms of interpretation on the study of Renaissance plays, theater, and performance.
This volume includes essays that focus on the participation of the drama in changing religious and economic systems, along with essays that focus on theater history in the transmission and revision of dramatic sources.
