Restoration Shakespeare: Viewing the Voice

Synopsis

Between 1660 and 1682 seventeen versions of Shakespeare's plays were made for the newly reopened public theatres in London, and in its three parts Restoration Shakespeare: Viewing the Voice offers a new view of why and how such adaptation was undertaken. Part I considers the seventeenth-century debate about how dramatic poetry works on the mind. Part II offers an analysis of each play with regard to its visual and metaphorical effects. Part III concludes with a review of Shakespeare's reputation in these years, drawing a distinction between what readers and playgoers would have known of him.
