Including fresh approaches to issues such as the one-sex model, cross-dressing, race and region, and women as the authors, subjects, and objects of theatrical representation, this collection of new essays engages the diverse range of current debates over gender in the English Renaissance theater. Scholars from the United States, Canada, and Great Britain investigate early modern theatrical practices and works by Shakespeare, Marlowe, Fletcher, and Webster, as well as less-studied texts by dramatists such as Elizabeth Cary, Richard Brome, and Jane Cavendish and Elizabeth Brackleyshow more
