The French Revolution and the London Stage, 1789-1805

Synopsis

During the French Revolution most performances on the London stage were strictly censored, but political attitudes found indirect expression. This book looks at how British drama and popular entertainment were affected by the ideas and events of the French Revolution and Napoleonic Wars. By a cultural analysis of the popular entertainment and theater performances of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries George Taylor reveals issues of ideological conflict and psychological stress.
