Emphasizing a performative and stage-centered approach, this book considers early modern European theater as an international phenomenon. Early modern theater was remarkable both in the ways that it represented material and symbolic exchanges across political, linguistic, and cultural borders, but also in the ways that it entered them. Contributors study various modalities of exchange, including the material and causal influence of one theater upon another, generalized and system influence, the transmission of theoretical and ethical ideas about the theater by humanist vehicles, and polyglot linguistic resonances that evoke circum-mediterranean "cultural geographies."
