abstract

This essay deals with different levels of stage directions to be found in both manuscripts and printed chapbooks of Portuguese Theatre from the 16th to the very early 19th centuries and the challenges they present to the modern editor. They range from the total absence of explicit directions to the multiple register of the same indication repeated in each actor’s paper of the play, and even to their addition by later editors. This chapter analyses several cases that may be considered paradigmatic of the difficulties to be found when editing those texts, setting different degrees of intervention.
