Listening for Theatrical Form in Early Modern England

Edinburgh University Press

The book’s introduction maps out its contribution to ongoing critical conversations surrounding literary form, the history of the body and the senses, the experience and effects of sound, and historical phenomenology. Through brief readings of The Revenger’s Tragedy and Epicoene, it introduces the two forms, and the two auditory models, that are at the heart of this analysis. How these two forms developed, and how and why hearing became so central to their content, plot, and structure, are introduced as the key questions that motivate this study.

Keywords:   Literary and dramatic form, History of the body, Historical phenomenology, Sound studies, Sound, Audition, Hearing, Revenge tragedy, City comedy, Audiences
