Lost Plays in Shakespeare's England

David McInnis, Matthew Steggle

Palgrave Macmillan | Published : 2014

Abstract

This edited collection examines assumptions about what a lost play is and how it can be talked about; how lost plays can be reconstructed, particularly when they use narratives already familiar to playgoers; and how lost plays can force us to reassess extant plays, particularly through ideas of repertory studies.
