Overview

Renaissance Drama, an annual and interdisciplinary publication, is devoted to drama and performance as a central feature of Renaissance culture.

This volume includes essays discussing Renaissance dramatic representations of violence, crime, public strife, and political mayhem, and essays exploring the ways in which chaos is ritualized to contain and/or encourage social, political, and religious disorder.
