Reviews

“Darlene Farabee’s new book contributes to this investigation, considering not only how Shakespeare establishes locations in his plays, but also how his audience perceives the mapping of his stage. … Farabee’s book is clear and engaging, its prose often luminous, and the questions it raises about the disorienting effects of theatrical experience – and the ways Shakespeare reassures or relocates his audience – are intriguing ones.” (Elizabeth Mazzola, Renaissance Quarterly, Vol. 68 (4), 2015)
