The Dynamics of Role-Playing in Jacobean Tragedy by Joan Lord Hall

By Joan Lord Hall

Jacobean actors interested audiences with their convincingly mimetic performances, usually showing to imagine the identities of the fictitious characters they impersonated. an analogous dynamic emerges in numerous tradegies of the interval, the place dramatic characters are usually replaced, for greater or worse, by means of the jobs they undertake in the play phantasm. This examine discusses how convinced performs of Jonson and Middleton display the damaging outcomes of assuming new personae, how 3 of Shakespeare's tradegies discover the ambivalent result of characters' experimentation with roles, and the way Webster and Ford deal with role-playing (including ceremonial behaviour) creatively, as a automobile for expressing and consolidating the dramatic self.
