Subject: New Book: Laughing and Weeping in Early Modern Theatres
List members may be interested in a new book, Laughing and Weeping in
Early Modern Theatres, written by me and newly published by Ashgate. It
asks questions like - how did actors on Shakespeare's stage perform
laughing and weeping? What did those actions mean? And can we say
anything about how, and when, their audiences were expected to laugh
and to weep?
Details, description, and an extract, are all on the Ashgate website,
