Description

James Shirley's Hyde Park (1632) is one of the best Caroline city comedies, building upon the Elizabethan and Jacobean traditions to partake in new considerations of London space, power, and courtship. The play especially warrants sustained critical consideration in terms of its representations of gender and powerful female characters. This critical edition offers modernised text with full introduction - considering space, gender, performance, and textual history. Extensive commentary traces considerations of Shirley's language, the play's performance possibilities, and its Caroline context.
