Book Description:

Illustrates the vitality & diversity of dramatic work in the period from 1660 to 1710. Twenty-five essays by leading scholars in the field offer new insights into the dramatic practice & innovation of the time.

From the Back Cover:

This Companion illustrates the vitality and diversity of dramatic work between 1660 and 1710. Twenty-five essays by leading scholars in the field bring together the best recent insights into the full range of dramatic practice and innovation at the time. Contributors examine well known genres such as Restoration sex comedy in a new light, and explore other genres such as heroic plays, satirical comedy, sentimental 'she-tragedy', tragi-comedy and political tragedy.

The three sections of the volume address the diverse aspects of Restoration Drama. The first situates the drama in its theatrical and social contexts and examines changing responses to Restoration drama from the eighteenth century to date, the second explores the wide range of dramatic genres, and the final section offers an introduction to the playwrights, including the first women dramatists. Coverage of the best known dramatists is balanced by attention to lesser known authors and plays.
