Wit's Pilgrimage: Drama and the Social Impact of Education in Early Modern England

Ashgate, 2000 - 270 Seiten
England experienced something of a social revolution in the years from the early 16th century to the Civil War. This work seeks to add a new dimension to the discussion of this phenomena by focusing on the emerging role and function of social behaviour as a means of signalling social identity and rank. Noting the even greater emphasis placed on manners, customs and ordinary behaviour during that time period, Darryll Grantley demonstrates the interrelation of two key elements - education and drama - in the reconstruction of social identity.
