About this item
The Routledge Anthology of Restoration and 18th Century Drama brings together the work of key playwrights from 1660 to 1800, divided into three main sections:
- Restoring the Theatre: 1660-1700
- Managing Entertainment: 1700-1760
- Entertainment in an Age of Revolutions: 1760-1800
Covering 20 major plays of the period, each of these sections offers an extraordinary wealth of print and online supplementary materials including primary critical sources, commentaries, illustrations, and reviews of productions. 15 further plays and musical entertainments appear onthe volume’s companion website, widening the scope of the print Anthology to build an even more comprehensive view of performance from 1660 – 1800.
Taking in the spectrum of this period's dramatic landscape - from Restoration tragedy and comedies of manners to ballad opera and gothic spectacle – The Routledge Anthology of Restoration and 18th Century Drama is an essential resource for students and teachers alike.
