The Elizabethan Dumb Show : The History of a Dramatic Convention Hardback
Part of the Routledge Revivals series
First published in English in 1965, this book discusses the roots and development of the dumb show as a device in Elizabethan drama.
The work provides not only a useful manual for those who wish to check the occurrence of dumb shows and the uses to which they are put; it also makes a real contribution to a better understanding of the progress of Elizabethan drama, and sheds new light on some of the lesser known plays of the period.
