About this product
- DescriptionThe purpose of this absorbing collection is to illuminate the world of the theatre by setting it squarely in its historical context. To that end, Professor Evans draws on the whole spectrum of Elizabethan-Jacobean writing, from official documents to diaries and letters. Part I, The Theatre and the World, deals, through contemporary writings, with the drama itself, the audiences and their responses, theatrical companies, acting and actors, and buildings and technical matters. Part II, The Worlds and the Theatre, illustrates how the problems of everyday life, complicated as they were by moral, religious, social, political, and ecomic issues, provided an ever-fruitful source of materials to the dramatists who practiced their craft during this extraordinarily creative period.
- Author BiographyG. Blakemore Evans taught Elizabethan-Jacobean drama for more than forty years. He is the author of many books on Shakespeare and drama.
