Henry Fielding and the London theatre, 1728-1737 by Robert D Hume( Book )

Fielding's ten years as England's premier dramatist and theatre manager have long been neglected. This contextual study restores him to his rightful place in English theatrical history and acknowledges his pioneering accomplishments, from his fabulous success at age 23 and hard times when the Drury Lane company fell apart, to his innovations as manager of his own troupe in 1736

Reconstructing contexts : the aims and principles of archaeo-historicism by Robert D Hume( Book )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In particular, Hume flatly denies the intellectual legitimacy of 'literary history' as it is commonly practised and attempts to disentangle such history from the practice of historicism. The final chapter is devoted to a cogent discussion of how archaeo-historicism relates to various forms of contemporary theory. Although addressed primarily to literary critics, this wide-ranging and bold work will be of interest to historians and cultural critics as well

The publication of plays in London 1660-1800 : playwrights, publishers, and the market by Judith Milhous( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A great deal of bibliographic and historical scholarship has been devoted to English drama up to 1660, but after the renaissance scholarship grows scant: late 17th-century plays have received little such attention, and 18th-century plays hardly any. This ground-breaking study by two internationally renowned scholars in theater history asks fundamental questions that have often been previously ignored - Who published plays? What was the cost of publication, the risk, and the potential profit? What did single plays cost, and what did play collections cost? How much market existed for used copies and at what prices? What did playwrights earn from publication, and how important was it to their income? What was the function of illustrations in published plays, and what can we learn from these illustrations?
