Summary In the transition to the Early Modern Age, drama forms the dominant genre. With its speed of production and its position between the written and the oral, between the urban?entertainment industry? and courtly representation, drama is the text type best suited to dealing with the social, religious and political tensions of the age. This collected volume provides an overview of the English, French, Spanish and German variants of drama in the Early Modern Age, from the religious plays of the Middle Ages to the engagement with classics of the European Renaissance in the Romantic Age
