Henry Fielding and the London Theatre, 1728-1737

Front Cover
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.
