9780199567478: The Elizabethan Stage: 4-volume set

A reissue of the E. K. Chambers's seminal four-volume account of the private, public, and court stages, together with other forms of drama and spectacle surviving from earlier times, from the beginning of the reign of Elizabeth until the death of Shakespeare. Haled in its day as a comprehensive compendium of 'practically all the discoverable evidence upon the various parts of the subject, collected, weighed, sorted, classified and built up with immense care into a logical and beautiful structure' (New Statesman), the work is still much consulted by by today's scholars and historians.

From the author's Preface:
'My First Book is devoted to a description, perhaps disproportionate, of the Elizabethan Court, and of the ramifications in pageant and progress, tilt and mask, of that instinct for spectacular mimesis, which the Renaissance inherited from the Middle Ages, and of which the drama is itself the most important manifestation. The Second Book gives an account of the settlement of the players in London, of their conflict, backed by the Court, with the tendencies of Puritanism, and of the place which they ultimately found in the monarchical polity. To the Third and Fourth belong the more pedestrian task of following in detail the fortunes of the individual playing companies and the individual theatres, with such fullness as the available records permit. The Fifth deals with the surviving plays, not in their literary aspect, which lies outside my plan, but as documents helping to throw light upon the history of the institution which produced them.'

About the Author:

Edmund Kerchever Chambers (1866-1954) was an English literary critic and Shakespearean scholar. His four-volume history of Elizabethan theater, published in 1903, remains a standard resource for scholars of the periods's drama.

Review:

This reissue comes with a splendid addition * Notes and Queries * The four volumes of Sir Edmund (E. K.) Chambers's The Elizabethan Stage, first published in 1923, remain a necessary cornerstone of the library of any scholar concerned with the theatre and drama of the age of Shakespeare. No one before him had compiled so comprehensive and meticulous a study of the basic documents relating to court performances, to state control of the theatrical profession, to individual theatre companies and their personnel, to the playhouses themselves, the dramatists and their individual works, the anonymous and even the lost plays. Though inevitably superseded in some respects by later research these volumes remain an essential resource for students of the most important era of our theatre history. * Stanley Wells, CBE * With this guide, the researcher has immediate access to a great work of Shakespearean scholarship, essentiallu a single achievement ... Its supremacy has never been seriously challenged. * Ralph Berry, Notes and Queries * One is left with awe and admiration for his [Chambers] achievement, the supreme work of Shakespearian scholarship of his century. * Ralph Berry, Notes and Queries *
