Focusing on the publication, marketing and readership of plays in the early modern period, this collection of nine essays opens fresh perspectives on the relationship between the cultures of print and performance and more broadly between drama and the public sphere. The essay topics include women as readers of printed drama, closet drama and the case of Tyrannicall-Government Anatomized, play-reading and the book trade, and black-letter typeface.
