Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The essay will present an introductory part dedicated to the English theatrical nineteenth century and in particular to the historical and social contingencies that led to the birth of the minor genus of burlesque. In the following parts we will consider some Shakespearean burlesques taken from Hamlet, Antony & Cleopatra and King Lear contextualizing them first in the contemporary theatrical panorama (fundamental to understand their genesis) and then highlighting the parodic elements based on the themes of food and of alcoholic beverages.
