Theatrical Milton

Politics and Poetics of the Staged Body

Brendan Prawdzik

Published by Edinburgh University Press

Edinburgh Critical Studies in Renaissance Culture

  • Focuses on rhetoric and representation while employing thick historical contextualization and selected theory.
  • Examines Milton's theatricality in the contexts of rhetorical culture, gender and anti-theatricality, popular literatures of the early 1640s, paradigms of worship, optics and horticulture, and the Quaker body in print and visual culture.
  • Demonstrates how theatricality cuts across Milton's genres.
