Synopsis

With emphasis on the distinctive effects possible on the Elizabethan stage and the evidence concerning stagecraft found in the late morality plays, Dessen focuses on theatrical techniques not readily apparent to the eye of the modern reader. He stresses that, to appreciate the richness of Elizabethan drama, the modern reader must bring to the text the interpretive skills of the critic, the theatrical point of view of the director, and the contextual knowledge of the historian.
