The Early Modern Corpse and Shakespeare's Theatre

Susan Zimmerman

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Original in its conjunction of critical theory (Bataille, Kristeva, Lacan, Benjamin) with an historical account of the shifting status of the corpse in late medieval and early modern England.
  • The first study to demonstrate connections between the meanings attached to the material body in early modern Protestantism, the practice of anatomical dissection, and the English public theatre.
  • Strong market appeal to scholars and graduate students with interests in the theatre of Shakespeare and his contemporaries, early modern religion and science, and literary theory.
  • Relevant to advanced undergraduates taking widely taught courses in Shakespeare and in Renaissance drama.
