Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Focuses on Jonson as an embodiment of the contradictions and complexities of early Stuart censorship of the theater: he was repeatedly censored in his early career and a censor himself later. Burt (English, U. of Massachusetts) concludes that the goal was not to stifle playwrights, but to legitimate and delegitimate specific discursive practices. Annotation c.
