This collection explores the Italian matrix of English Renaissance drama through new, challenging aspects of influence and rewarding investigations into classical and Italian theatergrams. The scope of the volume ranges from early Elizabethan to late Jacobean drama, relating at various stages such authors as Gascoigne, Kyd, and Marlowe to Boccaccio, Ariosto, and Castiglione. The essays throw fresh light on the study of Classical and Italian intertexts, and break new ground in the Italian world of the English Renaissance.
