Parsing the City: Jonson, Middleton, Dekker, and City Comedy's London as Language - Literary Criticism and Cultural Theory (Hardback)Heather Easterling (author)
- We can order this
Parsing the City updates our understanding of Jacobean city comedy's discursive role in its London society. Working with three major plays by Ben Jonson and Thomas Middleton and Thomas Dekker, this book develops an updated reading of Jacobean city comedy as a dramatic subgenre whose engagement with early modern London was centrally linguistic and semiotic-- its plays staging and interrogating the city as a series of languages and language problems.
