Overview
Imagining Spectatorship is a highly innovative historical, theoretical, and literary study in the emerging area of early spectatorship. It uses the authors' extensive experience of the field to turn the study of early drama on its head so that, with a focus on the spectators' experience (rather than on authors, actors, or the qualities of the text) continuities and synergies can be found across a wide range of performance types, and across a broad sweep of time. Can one discover how people long ago felt about what they saw or why Shakespeare's audiences might have been ready for the challenges he posed them? Although the individual spectator's experience will always elude us, this book offers possible routes to answering these questions.
