9780754655046: Italian Culture in the Drama of Shakespeare and His Contemporaries: Rewriting, Remaking, Refashioning (Anglo-Italian Renaissance Studies)

Applying recent developments in new historicism and cultural materialism - along with the new perspectives opened up by the current debate on intertextuality and the construction of the theatrical text - the essays collected here reconsider the pervasive influence of Italian culture, literature, and traditions on early modern English drama. The volume focuses strongly on Shakespeare but also includes contributions on Marston, Middleton, Ford, Brome, Aretino, and other early modern dramatists. The pervasive influence of Italian culture, literature, and traditions on the European Renaissance, it is argued here, offers a valuable opportunity to study the intertextual dynamics that contributed to the construction of the Elizabethan and Jacobean theatrical canon. In the specific area of theatrical discourse, the drama of the early modern period is characterized by the systematic appropriation of a complex Italian iconology, exploited both as the origin of poetry and art and as the site of intrigue, vice, and political corruption. Focusing on the construction and the political implications of the dramatic text, this collection analyses early modern English drama within the context of three categories of cultural and ideological appropriation: the rewriting, remaking, and refashioning of the English theatrical tradition in its iconic, thematic, historical, and literary aspects.

About the Author:

Michele Marrapodi is Full Professor of English Language and Literature, and History of English Drama in the Faculty of Arts at the University of Palermo, Italy.

Review:

'Marrapodi has not only gathered a well-chosen selection of scholars but has provided a critically sophisticated introductory essay, summarizing previous work without drawing too much attention, as he might have done without any argument from me, to his own earlier contributions. Che sprezzatura! It is impossible to do justice to each essay in a short review. Suffice it to say that each vein produces gold.' Renaissance Quarterly '...[I] recommend the volume to anyone interested in English Renaissance drama. Italian Culture in the Drama of Shakespeare and his Contemporary is also a welcome contribution to the growing field of transnational literary studies...' Shakespeare in Southern Africa 'This is a compendious, thought-provoking book, with arguments pushed to interesting and challenging limits.' Renaissance Studies '[This book] is a rich collection of tightly argued pieces... Ashgate is to be commended for publishing this... [it is] of a high standard and merit a wide readership.' Theatre Research International
