Description

This study illustrates the social, cultural and sexual variables which went into the fop's comic characterization, as well as acting as a model for individual character analysis on the Restoration stage. The critical methodology employed in analyzing the fop's comic function can be utilized within a range of dramatic studies not exclusively focused on the Restoration. Through an examination of a range of both canonical and lesser known dramatic comedies, the text shows that issues of sexuality, male effeminancy and social prejudice were indelibly connected with the fop.
