Tóm tắt: This book studies the cultural and economic status of playwriting in the later 17th and early 18th centuries, and argues that the period was a decisive one in the transition from Renaissance conceptions of authorship towards modern ones. In Shakespeare's time, creative originality and independence of voice had been little prized. Playwrights had appropriated materials from earlier writings with little censure, while the practice of collaboration among dramatists had been taken for granted. The book demonstrates that, in the decades following the Restoration, those attitudes were challenged by new conceptions of dramatic art, which required authors to be the sole begetters of their works. This book explores a series of developments in the theatrical marketplace that increased both the rewards and the prestige of the dramatist, and shows the Restoration period to have been one of serious and animated debate about the methods of playwriting. Against that background, the book offers a fresh account of the formation of the canon of English drama, revealing how the moderns — Dryden, Otway, Lee, Behn, and then their successors Congreve, Vanbrugh, and Farquhar — acquired an esteem equal, even superior, to their illustrious predecessors Shakespeare, Jonson, and Fletcher.
