Theatre of the Book 1480–1880

Julie Stone Peters

Oxford University Press

This chapter looks at the renewal of anti-theatricalism in response to the extra-spectacular 19th-century theatre, the aversion to the cumbersome palpability of stage bodies and the turn towards the closet, and also at the simultaneous recognition of the inherent powers of the theatrical and the resulting articulation of an idealist aesthetics married to a theatricalism that could be key to the spectator's transcendent imagination.

Keywords:   anti-theatricalism, aesthetics, theatre, theatricalism
