Synopsis

Hughes examines all of the surviving plays written and professionally premiered in England between 1660 and 1700. Hughes analyzes many texts in detail and places them within the range of contemporary theatrical output, with its diversity of outlook and constant shifts in fashion and subject. In addition, Hughes presents an innovative analysis of the plays' political, intellectual, and social background, with extensive discussion of their treatment of women and the contribution of women dramatists.
