Shakespeare's Visual Theatre: Staging the Personified Charactersby Frederick Kiefer
Pub. Date: 09/28/2014
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Frederick Kiefer looks at the personified characters created by Shakespeare in his plays (his walking, talking abstractions) in this study of Shakespeare's visual culture. These include Rumour in 2 Henry IV, Time in The Winter's Tale, Spring and Winter in Love's Labour's Lost, Revenge in Titus Andronicus, and the deities in the late plays. Kiefer reconstructs their appearances; explains the symbolism of their costumes and props; and assesses their significance for the plays in which they appear.
