Synopsis

Medieval and Renaissance Drama in England features a symposium on women and the theater, including essays on constancy and gender in The Virtuous Octavia, I Edward IV and the ballad tradition, and Chapman's The Widow's Tears. It also includes discussions on playing in the provinces, the Cross Keys Inn, and magic contests in contemporary plays. There is also a reconsideration of the closing of the theaters in 1642. A special review section highlights new books in theater history. There are also reviews of books on topics ranging from the Jewish woman on the Renaissance stage to the House of Commons and legal issues, to revenge tragedy and Shakespeare's modern collaborators. S. P. Cerasano is the Edgar W. B. Fairchild Professor of Literature at Colgate University.
