Medieval and Renaissance Drama in England: Volume 21
Edited by S.P. Cerasano

About the Editor: S. P. Cerasano is the Edgar W. B. Fairchild Professor of Literature at Colgate University. She is currently working on a book about Philip Henslowe and editing Edward Alleyn’s diary (1617-1623) for Oxford University Press.

Volume 21 of Medieval and Renaissance Drama in England, presented here, reflects diverse scholarly interests, ranging from the presence and influence of Africans in Elizabethean London, to the performances of plays in chapels to the theory and practice of domestic tragedy. Additionally, the reader will find essays on historical and theoretical issues relating to the evolution of dramatic texts, playhouse audiences, and some key illustrations depicting troupes of traveling players in Germany. An extended review essay probes current scholarly interests in the year 1599. Nineteen reviews complete the volume.
