: The thirteen essays collected in This Earthly Stage explore intersections between the world as stage and the stage as world in late medieval and early modern England. This collection features studies of stages both familiar and unfamiliar, and worlds old and new - from the ritual performance of funerals for the fifteenth-century London elite to the electronic recreation of Shakespeare on the internet. The collected essays engage with a variety of scholarly fields, including art and iconography, cultural and social history, digital humanities, literature, myth, philology, and philosophy. This volume offers a valuable contribution to contemporary medieval and early modern studies, with a particular interest for those researching and teaching early modern English drama and culture.
