Playwright, Space, and Place in Early Modern Performance: Shakespeare and Company

Front Cover
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2011 - Performing Arts - 314 pages
Analyzing Elizabethan and Jacobean play texts for their spatial implications, this innovative study discloses the extent to which the resources and constraints of public playhouse buildings affected the construction of the fictional worlds of early modern plays. By clarifying a sixteenth- to seventeenth-century conception of theatrical place, Tim Fitzpatrick adds a new layer of meaning to our understanding of the texts.
