Harlequin Empire: Race, Ethnicity and the Drama of the Popular Enlightenment

0.0  ·  Rating details ·  0 Ratings  ·  0 Reviews
Under the 1737 Licensing Act, Covent Garden, Dury Lane and regional Theatres Royal held a monopoly on the dramatic canon. This work explores the presentation of foreign cultures and ethnicities on the popular British stage from 1750 to 1840. It argues that this illegitimate stage was the site for a plebeian Enlightenment.
