Such works as The Beggar's Opera, Trivia, Achilles, and The Shepherd's Week map the dynamics of the emerging capitalist order of eighteenth-century Britain. Distinguishing "popular" from "polite" culture and making rich use of both, Gay's satires encode the stratifying categories of our modern world of striving individuals: genders, social classes, ethnic and racial identities, and sexual orientations. "Deep Play" uncovers a diverse cultural context for Gay's work, providing song texts, musical examples, dance diagrams, portraits and engravings."--BOOK JACKET."
