Aims and Scope
This book explores the connections between economy and hospitality in 18th century German and English dramatic texts. It uses this particular focus to explain the economic structures of public and private life of the period, and, at the same time, shows how these processes clearly impact tragic and comedic poetics and related genres such as melodrama and farce.
