Über diesen Titel
Victorian women were exhilarated by the authoritative voice and the professional opportunity the theater offered them. In this book Kerry Powell chronicles the development of women's participation in the theater as playwrights, actresses and managers and explores the making of the Victorian actress, gender discourse and playwriting of the period, and the contributions these made to developments in the following century.Review:
"...the study itself winningly chronicles the attempts by men to maintain control of the theater and the emergent, threatening role of women as managers and playwrights as well as actresses. Especially welcome is its contribution in bringing to light a tradition of female playwrights--a phenomenon deemed an impossibility in the rhetoric of the Victorian theater despite their increasing numbers as the century drew to a close." Joseph W. Childers
"...a very useful book..." Martha Vicinus, Victorian Studies
