Riassunto: This study demonstrates how Shakespeare utilized a strategy of manipulating the language and conventions of public execution, specifically in The Comedy of Errors, Titus Andronicus, Richard III, Measure for Measure, and The Tempest. It uses audience-reception theory and new historicism, as well as non-dramatic texts (popular literature and ballads) to demonstrate the knowledge and experiences of execution that the audiences of Shakespeare's time took with them to the theatre. With illustrations.
L'autore: Dr. Charles Mitchell received his PhD in Theatre from the University of Colorado at Boulder. He is currently Assistant Professor at Loyola College, Baltimore. For two years, he was Managing Editor of On-Stage Studies, a peer-reviewed, annual theatre journal.
