(p.165) Conclusion
Dramatic Geography

Laurence Publicover

Oxford University Press

The Conclusion brings together the book’s arguments through a discussion of The Tempest’s geography, focusing in particular on its presentation of the sea. Arguing that dramatic geography is a unique form of literary geography in that it asks playgoers to consider the relationship between the site of performance and the site performed, it posits that early modern theatrical culture allowed for an especially rich dramatic geography for a number of reasons, including the design and mutual proximity of the London theatres and the fact that early modern playgoers were especially skilled at picking up on meanings created through generic strategies and intertheatrical negotiations.
