Summary
This fascinating study examines sixteenth and seventeenth century conceptions of memory and forgetting, and their importance for both early modern culture and the drama of Shakespeare, Marlowe and Webster. The author shows how early modern playwrights understood 'self-forgetting' as the occasion for dramatic experiments in representing human behaviour and identity
