Portraits in Early Modern English Drama: Visual Culture, Play-Texts, and Performances

Portraits in Early Modern English Drama: Visual Culture, Play-Texts, and Performances

Portraits in Early Modern English Drama studies the complex web of interconnections that grows out of the presentation of portraits as props in early modern English drama. Emanuel Stelzer considers this theory from the Elizabethan age up to the closing of the theatres. This book examines how the dramatic text and the subjectivities of the dramatis personae are shaped and changed through the process of observation and interpretation of pictures in the dramatic actions and dialogues


Unlike any previous study, it confronts when a portrait is clearly meant not to be a miniature. This also has bearings on the effect of the picture on the audience and in terms of genre expectation. Two important questions are interrogated throughout the book. What were the price and value of these portraits? And, what were the strategies deployed by the playing companies to show women's portraits in a theatre without actresses?


This book will be of interest to different areas of research dealing with the history of drama and literature, material and visual culture studies, art history, gender studies, and performance studies.
