Editorial Reviews


"... [a] rich, well-researched volume ... This valuable book illuminates underexplored aspects of early modern thought, with important consequences for understanding the period's plays. Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty."
T. Pollard, Choice

"... [it] sheds new light on the development of science from early modern to modern ... The sheer breadth of knowledge in this book will make it an appealing read for students of Shakespearian performance, gender studies, the history of science, and the history of the book."
Benjamin C. Miele, The Shakespeare Newsletter

Book Description

Intended for scholars of literature, gender, and science history, this book argues that Renaissance drama participates in natural philosophy's production of epistemological boundaries. The representation of preternatural phenomena not only demonstrates a belief in occult forces, but it also suggests that presumptions about women's secret knowledges influenced emergent scientific discourse.
