Female Playwrights of the Nineteenth Century
Adrienne Scullion (ed). From the vigor of Romantic verse drama & the extravagant settings & characterizations of historical tragedy, to witty comedies, favorite melodramas & portrayals of the passion, pathos & politics of everyday life, the plays of this anthology take in the full range of 19th-cent. dramatic development. Written to be accessible to a wide variety of audiences, the stern ethics, sentiment & sensation of these plays fulfilled the principle demand of their audiences: to be entertained within established boundaries of taste & morality. Includes: Joanna Baillie, “The Family Legend”; Marie-Therese Kemble, “The Widow’s Stratagem”; Anna Cora Mowatt, “Life in N.Y.”; Mrs. Henry Wood, “East Lynne”; & Florence Bell & Elizabeth Robins, “Alan’s Wife.”
