The Lights o' London and Other Victorian Plays is a new selection of five nineteenth-century English plays, none of which has been recently available in print. Each represents vividly and masterfully the three dominant dramatic forms of the Victorian era: melodrama, farce, and comedy. All were extremely popular with audiences, and much vigour, excitement, and variety of dramatic expression of their time can be found in these texts. Included are Edward Fitzball's The Inchcape Bell; Joseph Stirling Coyne's Did You Ever Send Your Wife to Camberwell?; The Game of Specualtion by George Henry Lewes; George Robert Sims's he Light's 'o London; and The Middleman by Henry Arthur Jones. The texts of the plays have been newly edited and are presented with an introduction and detailed annotation.show more
