Anthony Munday and civic culture

Theatre, history and power in early modern London 1580-1633

Tracey Hill

Published by Manchester University Press

  • A full-scale study of the important but neglected writer Anthony Munday, which fills a long-standing gap in our knowledge and understanding of London and its culture in the early modern period
  • Appeals to the ongoing literary and historical interest in London - offers a broad account of London culture, and discusses a range of texts from high to popular culture
  • Explores a wide range of Munday's texts, including plays, prose, translations, Lord Mayor's Shows and his editions of the 'Survey of London'
  • Draws on both literary and historical sources, as well as biographical detail
