Playhouse and Cosmos: Shakespearean Theater as Metaphor
University of Delaware Press, 1985 - 188 Seiten
Playhouse and Cosmos systematically and comprehensively describes the function of theater and role-playing as metaphors in Shakespearean drama. The author examines this metaphor's revelatory and liberating power and concludes by affirming, with Shakespeare, the creative power of theatricality in life and in art.
