Synopsis

As well as discussing familiar authors such as William Wycherley, Aphra Behn and William Congreve, this book also considers several neglected dramatists whose plays defy easy classification. Together these writers embraced subjects as diverse as political authority, colonialism, social identity, sexual transgression and the nature of language. In doing so they created a new kind of theatre.
