Richard Brome

Place and politics on the Caroline stage

Matthew Steggle

Published by Manchester University Press

Revels Plays Companion Library MUP

  • Richard Brome was the leading comic playwright of 1630s London and this is the authoritative reference work on his life and works, supplying much new information and making previous works obsolete
  • This book is reshapes perceptions of 1630s drama, now seen as a growth area in early modern drama studies
  • There have been major recent theatrical revivals of 'A Jovial Crew' (1992) and 'The Antipodes' (2000), both of which are discussed here
  • Brome is an important figure, not least because of his association with Jonson, and Shakespeare
  • He was also one of the most influential pre-1642 dramatists on the Restoration and eighteenth-century stage
