Riassunto: In Renaissance drama, madness links personal crisis to political crisis. Duncan Salkeld covers a range of psychiatric, political and dramatic literature from the renaissance to the present day to examine the interplay between madness and drama in the plays of Shakespeare and other key dramatists, such as Jonson, Kyd, Dekker, Webster, Beaumont and Fletcher. The cultural history of madness is a fascinating topic and Salkeld uses theorists such as Foucault, Derrida, Shoshana Felman and Luce Irigaray to explore the powerful dynamics of reason and madness, control and subversion. In reading madness as an index of contemporary power relations in Renaissance plays, Salkeld sheds light on the historical and ideological conditions which underlie our own rationality.
