About this book

This original and scholarly work uses three detailed case studies of plays – Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra , King Lear and Cymbeline – to cast light on the ways in which early modern writers used metaphor to explore how identities emerge from the interaction of competing regional and spiritual topographies.
