Theatre of the Book, 1480-1880: Print, Text, and Performance in Europe
Oxford University Press, 2000 - 494 من الصفحات
It shows that, far from being marginal to Renaissance dramatists, the printing press had an essential role to play in the birth of the modern theatre, crucially shaping the normative conception of theatre as a distinct aesthetic medium and of drama as a distinct narrative form, helping to forge a theatricalist aesthetics in opposition to 'the book'. Treating playtexts, engravings, actor portraits, notation systems, and theatrical ephemera at once as material objects and expressions of complex cultural formations, Theatre of the Book examines the European theatre's resistance to and continual refashioning of itself in the world of print."--Jacket.
