New essay in The Behn Legacy: 1700s

Check out the new essay in The Behn Legacy section: this week we look at two key female playwrights at either end of the 1700s; Susannah Centlivre and Elizabeth Inchbald. I hope you will be inspired to read some of their work, which has some surprisingly modern elements. I read A Bold Stroke for a Wife by Centlivre and Lovers’ Vows by Inchbald.
