Reviews

'To say that the book reaches no firm conclusions is not to disparage it: rather this uncertainty is a measure of the integrity of Ichikawa's exploration of the slippery world of early modern drama.' The Times Literary Supplement
'This is a book for those who like thinking in detail about staging questions ... Ichikawa has read an impressive number of plays from the period, and she writes with a keen sense of the limits of our knowledge of early modern stage practice. Her book is a real if modest contribution to theater studies and helps its readers think again about where on the stage Malvolio is imprisoned, how the Player King's body in Hamlet was gotten off the stage, and whether the upper stage was used for playing music before the introduction of formal music rooms.' Renaissance Quarterly
