Summary
A dozen essays describe and demonstrate the usefulness of performance to study English drama from the 12th to the 17th century. They explore the realization of metaphor in performance and modern performance as a critical tool, and report insights into moralities, university drama, interludes, and Shakespeare informed by performance.
