From the Publisher"The book uses an interdisciplinary methodology to examine the ways in which London as urban space underwent a reconceptualization as it moved from medieval town to early modern city.
[Hopkins] brilliantly traces the mixed and gradual evolution of postmedieval maps, itineraries, and map images to illustrate the different ways in which visual representations of space and topography performed the city." —Ric Knowles (University of Guelph), Theatre Journal
"[T]he book’s greatest contribution lies in its methodology. Part of Routledge’s series on "Literary Criticism and Cultural Theory," City/Stage/Globe brings a profound investment in performance theories and practices to the study of literary London."
"Though the immediate audience of may be scholars of performance in Shakespeare’s London, Hopkins’s model of a performance genealogy of space constitutes a significant contribution to the study of performance beyond the early modern period or England." —Marissa Greenberg (University of New Mexico), Shakespeare Bulletin
