Renaissance Drama by Women
Gathered for the first time in this unique volume are plays and documents which show that, contrary to traditional thinking, women did participate in the theatrical culture of the Renaissance. Women were authors, translators, performers, spectators, and even part-owners of theatres.
Included in this meticulously edited volume are four full-length plays, a fragment of a translation from Seneca by Queen Elizabeth I, a masque written for performance by a ladies’ school before Queen Anne and a collection of historical documents.
Renaissance Drama by Women: Texts and Documents is the first collection to offer such a wealth of literary and historical material. The editors assist the reader in understanding the richness of the texts by providing modernized spellings, full notes, annotations of unfamiliar words and phraseology, biographical essays and a bibliography. This volume will be invaluable to students and scholars of Renaissance studies, theatre history and women’s studies.
