Exploring issues of culture and performance raised by presentations of European languages-Welsh, French, Dutch, Spanish, Irish and Latin-on the stage, this book treats sound and performance as essential to understanding what these languages meant in the English theatre. It contributes to our emerging sense of how local identities and global knowledge in early modern England were shaped by encounters with nearby lands, particularly encounters stages for aural consumption.
