Description

The Gothic drama came at a critical moment in the history of the theater, of British culture, and of European politics in the shadow of France's revolution and the fall of Napoleon. It offered playwrights a medium to express the prevailing ideological tensions of romanticism and revolution, and also responded to a growing and changing theater audience. In a wide-ranging introduction, Cox explores Gothic drama's links with romanticism and its relation to other social and ideological shifts of the day. The texts are presented so as to reflect the dual life of dramatic works-on the stage and on the page. The plays are annotated and accompanied by biographic and bibliographic sketches.
