Tudor Drama Before Shakespeare, 1485-1590
New Directions for Research, Criticism, and Pedagogy
For too long, a large part of the corpus of Tudor drama has languished in the shadow of Shakespeare and his late-Elizabethan contemporaries. The essays in this collection offer a timely re-assessment of pre-Shakespearean theater in all its aspects, from the practicalities of staging and touring to issues of representation and ideology. The volume delivers a significant challenge to developmental models of theatrical and literary history and substantially revises our understanding of key texts, practices, and cultures of early modern drama.
