Synopsis: Fictional or real, pirates haunted the imagination of the 18th and 19th century-British public. British Pirates in Print and Performance explores representations of pirates through dozens of stage performances, including adaptations by Byron, Scott, and Cooper, in a period of maritime commerce, exploration, and naval conflict. Tracking the movement between the pirate on stage and the pirate in print, this book reveals the origins and dramatic developments of the signifiers that audiences attach to piracy, including pirate fashion (from peg-legs to parrots), the Jolly Roger, and walking the plank.

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Condition: New. 272 pages. This book tracks the interconnections among pirates, pirates in print, and pirates on stage. Performance is the shared strategy for all three. Our chapters examine accounts of piracy in historical records, in adventure stories and romance, and, crucial to the emphasis on performativity, in stage representation. British pirates, in both print and performance, are discussed within a nexus of influence that cares very little for generic distinction beyond the constant of performativity. In fact and in fiction, the role-playing pirate is traced through dozens of stage performances, including the nautical Gothic melodrama, the adaptations of Byron, Scott, and Cooper, and the exploits of lusty she-pirates.
