Matei-Chesnoiu examines the changing understanding of world geography in sixteenth-century England and the concomitant involvement of the London theatre in shaping a new perception of Western European space. Fresh readings are offered of Shakespeare, Jonson, Marlowe, Middleton, Dekker, Massinger, Marston, and others.


This is an intriguing book with wide cross-disciplinary appeal, engaging with literary, political, historical and geographical texts to show the interwoven nature of places, peoples, events and representations. - Literature & History
