Metatheater in Elizabethan and Jacobean Drama: Four Forms of Theatrical Self-Reflexivity
2008 0-7734-5061-0
This study explores the theatrical self-reflexivity in early modern drama in terms of themetatheatrical critical perspective advocated by Lionel Abel, James L. Calderwood, Richard Hornby, and Judd D. Hubert, to name just a few. Some early modern dramatic works display unflagging excavation and disclosure of the dramatic art itself. Their self-conscious exploration of the nature and function of dramatic art gives us a chance to reconsider the dramatic medium.
