Renaissance Drama 26 - New Series XXVI 1995 Explorations in Renaissance Drama

Renaissance Drama, an annual and interdisciplinary publication, is devoted to drama and performance as a central feature of Renaissance culture. The essays in each volume explore traditional canons of drama, the significance of performance (broadly construed) to early modern culture, and the impact of new forms of interpretation on the study of Renaissance plays, theater, and performance.

The essays in Volume XXVI, "Explorations in Renaissance Drama," explore a range of theoretical issues, as well as issues in gender studies. Topics include the economic determination of Renaissance drama, same-sex erotic friendship, the construction of homoerotic desire in early modern England, two essays on The Taming of the Shrew, and another on staging the East.
