Shakespeare's storms

Gwilym Jones

Published by Manchester University Press

  • The first and only book-length study of Shakespeare's storms
  • Storms are theatrical set pieces, and sources of metaphor. This book shows how stage practices shape Shakespeare's language. It's the only book that traces such development across his whole career
  • The only book to integrate the early modern understanding of weather with the stage effects that were used to represent that weather
  • Sets the agenda for a historicist, non-activist, ecocriticism, thereby broadening the field's appeal and widening its methodology. It is essential for anyone working in, or interested in, ecocriticism
  • Establishes a place for theatre history in contemporary theory in genuinely novel ways. It is therefore indispensible for anyone working in early modern performance studies
