Abstract

In recent years, there has been quite a bit of enthusiasm and interest among scholars of early modern English and Spanish drama to embrace the performative aspects of seventeenth-century plays. Laura L. Vidler’s monograph, Performance Reconstruction and Spanish Golden Age Drama: Reviving and Revising the Comedia, is a prominent example of recent trends in comedia studies to examine and analyze Golden Age theatrical works through the lens of performance studies. As Vidler indicates, portions of some of the chapters have been published previously as articles, but the material is further developed here.
