Abstract:

"Delarivier Manley and Mary Pix were among the groundbreaking "female wits," who debuted their original plays for the public stage in 1695-66. Two of these plays contain explicitly Islamicate themes. Manley's The Royal Mischief expands on The Travels of Sir John Chardin into Persia (1686), and Pix's Ibrahim draws on Rycaut's History of the Turkish Empire (1687). Continuing this interest, Manley's Almyna (1706-7) responds to the newly traslated Arabian Nights Entertainments (1704-17). and Pix's The Conquest of Spain (1705) engages the history of Islamic Spain recounted in The Life of the Most Illustrious Monarch Almanzor (1693). These plays have been modernized and annotated in this edition, for the first time. This edition also includes appendices with excerpts from historical sources and a select bibliography"--Back cover.
