Overview

Performances of Mourning in Shakespearean Theatre and Early Modern Culture (Early Modern Literature in History Series) by Tobias Döring

This study takes a look at a controversial question: what do the acts and shows of grief performed in early modern drama tell us about the religious culture of the world in which they were historically staged? Drawing on performance studies, it provides detailed readings of play texts to explore the politics, pathologies and parodies of mourning.
