Part of the Writers and their Work series

Description

Caroline Drama takes as its focus the public theatre playwriting of Philip Massinger, John Ford, James Shirley and Richard Brome between 1625 and 1642.

It brings into clear focus for those unfamiliar with these playwrights a neglected period of writing.

Setting their plays within a social and political context, Julie Sanders reveals their concern with issues of community and hierarchy in the decades leading up to the English Civil Wars.

By exploring a range of plays of each writer, sheexplores both their continuities and their differences, as well as examining their particular choices of subject matter, language, and theatrical strategy.

The value of Caroline Drama as a whole becomes clear as a result of this study.
