about

This book was shortlisted for the ESSE Book Awards

This volume analyses the endeavours of early Elizabethan playwrights to examine the narrative possibilities of drama. Paying attention to pre-Shakespearean comedies written in English between 1560 and 1590, the author explores how the interest in depicting subjective experience arose among English dramatists years before the theatre of Shakespeare and Jonson reached its zenith.
Cinta Zunino-Garrido received her PhD in English Studies from the University of Huelva. She is lecturer in the Department of English Studies at the University of Jaén, where she currently teaches English literature. Her major research interests include early Elizabethan drama, Renaissance rhetoric, and humanism.
