Staging early modern romance : prose fiction, dramatic romance, and Shakespeare

Mary Ellen Lamb (Editor), Valerie Wayne (Editor)
This collection recovers the continuities between three forms of romance that have often been separated from one another in critical discourse: early modern prose fiction, the dramatic romances staged in England during the 1570s and 1580s, and Shakespeare’s late plays.
