Scandinavian Drama: Medieval and Modern



This issue of Comparative Drama has been organized around Scandinavian drama in the Middle Ages and the relation between the medieval and modem in theater and film. The theme is defined by the five contributors who revisit specific domains of the medieval world. The object and nature of their search for the Middle Ages set the boundaries for a collective attempt to represent Scandinavian drama in a medieval context. Below the clouded and tangled patterns of facts and events the scholars represented here attempt to reconstruct history from their diverse vantage points. They all share.a historical approach in their remembrance and reflection on things past. From this perspective the articles allow themselves naturally to be presented in chronological order.
