Claire M. L. Bourne

  • Draws from an extensive original typographic survey of about 1,900 discrete editions of plays printed in England between the late fifteenth and early eighteenth centuries
  • Treats typography as an essential feature of the text
  • Close reads material form (typographic arrangements) alongside the content of early modern plays
