The text of The Roaring Girl is based on the text from English Renaissance Drama: A Norton Anthology It is accompanied by generous explanatory annotations, five illustrations, and a detailed introduction.
Thirteen critical essays chart the development of scholarly interest in The Roaring Girl, from the first half of the twentieth century, when the play received only passing reference, through the work on city comedy in the 1970's and 1980's, to the explosion of analyses through the late 1980's and 1990's when the play became a major focus for early modern gender studies. The more recent critical essays move beyond a strict focus on gender and cross-dressing to explore The Roaring Girl's depiction of other aspects of early modern London, including consumer culture and the contemporary fascination with the language of the criminal underworld. --Book Jacket.
