Cosmetics in Shakespearean and Renaissance Drama [9781474452724]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
This revised edition examines how the plays of Shakespeare and his contemporaries dramatise the Renaissance preoccupation with cosmetics. Farah Karim-Cooper explores the then-contentious issue of female beauty and identifies a 'culture of cosmetics', which finds its visual identity on the early modern stage. She also examines cosmetic recipes and anti-cosmetic literature focusing on their relationship to drama in its representations of gender, race, politics and beauty.

AUTHOR:
Farah Karim-Cooper is the Head of Higher Education & Research at Shakespeare's Globe and Visiting Research Fellow of King's College London, where she co-convenes the MA in Shakespeare Studies.
