|Publication Date||May 2012|
|Formats||Hardcover Ebook (PDF) Paperback|
The Changeling by Thomas Middleton and William Rowley is a luridly sensual dramatic work which was highly regarded in its day, but then largely forgotten until its revival three hundred years later. This timely Handbook:
• offers a detailed theatrical commentary which tracks the motivations of the capricious characters and explores performance possibilities
• examines the cultural conditions that gave rise to the play, juxtaposing them with the conditions of the twentieth century
• analyses early performances as well as later stage and film productions
• presents key critical debates and assessments of The Changeling.
