From the Publisher"Presenting the queen's theatrical endeavors as 'a displaced means of registering political opinion' (p 64), Britland offers readers a shrewd and detailed theatrical biography of her subject, beginning with Princess Henrietta's earliest balletic appearances in France and emphasizing the element of political allegory that invested all of her courtly entertainments." - Bruce Boehrer, Studies in English Literature
"this is a thoughtful and well-researched study that deserves attention from historians as well as students of court theatre." - Malcolm Smuts, University of Massachusetts, Boston
"Britland's richly interdisciplinary work promises to reshape our perspective on this moment of early modern cultural production."
Harriette Andreadis, Renaissance Quarterly
