Product Description


CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title 2015

?Contemporary scholarship on Shakespeare, Elizabethan theater, and early modern culture can seem overwhelming in scope, esoteric in content, and impenetrable in presentation. Keenan's accessible, concise volume is not in that mold ... Each chapter also offers a specific case study in which Keenan meticulously applies the concepts of the chapter to a specific play. Keenan impresses on readers the vitality and significance of acting companies in relation to this celebrated period of theater. This book will be indispensable for those exploring Shakespeare and his contemporaries. Summing Up: Essential. Academic readers at all levels, professionals, general readers.? ?S. B. Skelton, Kansas State University, CHOICE

HASH(0xa2b99198) out of 5 stars Misleading Title for a Fascinating Book on Theatrical Practice July 15 2016
By Curtis Daw - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I found this a fascinating look at the way the theatrical companies of London influenced the process of making (and often revising) plays during the Elizabethan and Jacobean periods. My only hesitation is that the title seems to imply a focus on the repertories of individual companies. That is not really the case. Instead, the book focuses more on the ways the profession, in general, shaped plays, in general.
