Pastoral Transformations: Italian Tragicomedy and Shakespeare's Late Plays
Pastoral Transformations examines the dramaturgy of Shakespeare's Cymbeline, The Winter's Tale, and The Tempest in the context of sixteenth-century Italian tragicomedy. The book examines the theory and practice of Giraldi, Tasso, and Gurini, as well as experiments of the commedia dell'arte. The author demonstrates the presence of independent yet parallel historical and dramaturgical developments in the Italian and Shakespearean theaters.
