Abstract

Abstract:

Much like his better-known tragicomedy The Tempest, Shakespeare's Pericles, Prince of Tyre displays many characteristics of ecodrama, a type of theatre that highlights the connections between the human and natural world. Although the play's title hints at a tale of individualism, ecocritical and ecofeminist analyses reveal Pericles to be a complex story of interconnectivity among people and place. This paper draws on performance histories of Pericles as well as several critical concepts, including theories of embodiment, affect, and nonduality—a concept predicated upon holism and ecological entanglement—to highlight avenues of engagement with the natural world.
