Price analyzes Frischlin’s dramatic output, as well as humanist literary theory, in particular Renaissance approaches to rhetoric and imitation, to explain how humanists modified or even subverted classical forms to accommodate political and theological activism.
"Using Frischlin's many plays and tracts as a starting point, the author comes to astute conclusions as to the important underlying connections between art and life as perceived by the German Humanists. . . . Rarely does one encounter such a lively presentation of early modern material."--Sixteenth Century Journal
