Hannah Cowley (17431809) was a very successful dramatist, and something of an eighteenth-century celebrity. New critical interest in the drama of this period has meant a resurgence of interest in Cowleys writing and in the performance of her plays.

Thomas Chatterton was a poet, forger, and adolescent suicide, and the debate over his work was a pivotal episode in the history of eighteenth-century literature.

Olivia McCannon?s first collection explores life on the edge of possibility: in one moment the familiar is blown open, we plunge into the unknown.

- The Edwin Mellen Press 2012; US$ 169.95
David Garrick was an assiduous reader and collector of older English, and to some extent French plays and we can see him looking backwards, searching out and buying extant play collections offered for sale. Some of these plays he remodeled and imitated for his company. Looking forward, beyond him, we can see that his work was in turn admired, read,... more...

The Critical Heritage gathers together a large body of critical sources on major figures in literature.
