dc.description.abstractThis project begins with the observation that mapping culture in Early Modern England underwent explosive changes that profoundly effected the spatial perspectives of individuals. In order to understand the extent of such effects, this thesis examines the resonance between maps and theater in Early Modern England using Shakespeare's Antony of Antony and Cleopatra as a model for how individuals may have responded to maps in Early Modern England. The subject of conflicting spatial desires, Antony and his very body become a site of tension and resistance both within the play and upon the stage. As such, this project argues that Antony's body in Antony and Cleopatra demonstrates not only an Early Modern English anxiety regarding mapped space, but also a method of resistance to mapped space for Early Modern audiences.en
