During the 1820s and 30s nautical melodramas "reigned supreme" on London stages, entertaining the mariners and maritime workers who comprised a large part of the audience for small theatres with the same sentimental moments and comic interludes of domestic melodrama mixed with patriotic images that communicated and reinforced imperial themes. However, generally the study of British theatre history moves from medieval and renaissance plays directly to the realism and naturalism of late Victorian and modern drama. Readers typically encounter a gap between Restoration and eighteenth-century plays like those of Oliver Goldsmith and Richard Brinsley Sheridan, and late-nineteenth plays by Henrik Ibsen and Oscar Wilde. Nineteenth-century drama, with the possible exception of plays by Byron, Shelley, and Wordsworth, remains all but invisible. Until recently, melodramatic plays written and performed during this "gap" received little scholarly attention, but their value as reflections of Britain’s promulgation of imperial ideology — and its role in constructing and maintaining class, gender, and racial identities — have given discussions of melodrama force and momentum. The plays in included in these three volumes have never appeared in a critical anthology and most have not been republished since their original nineteenth-century editions. Each play is transcribed from the original documents and includes an author biography, a headnote about the play itself, full annotations with brief definitions of unfamiliar vocabulary, and explanatory notes. Comprehensive editorial apparatus details the nineteenth-century imperial, naval, political, and social history relevant to the plays’ nautical themes, as well as discussing nineteenth-century theatre history, melodrama generally, and the nautical melodrama in particular. Contemporary theatre practices — acting, audiences, staging, lighting, special effects — are also examined. An extensive bibliography of primary and secondary texts; a complete index; and contemporary images of the actors, theatres, stage sets, playbills, costumes, and locales have been compiled to aid study further. The appendices include maps of Britain, Europe, and the East and West Indies.

Inspired by Maryanne Grant Traylen’s daily walks with her dog, and by the moments of beauty afforded by living between sea and Down, A Dog on the Downs evokes the North Kent countryside in its different moods, seasons and weathers, combined with a narrative that invokes a sense of the geology and history that has shaped the landscape. Black dog is not only Maryanne’s walking companion but her visual constant, looking elegant, even Gormley-like, against the green of hill or blue of sea. Concentrating on Kent’s North Downs framed at the east, west, north and south by Kingsdown Beach, New Barn, Denton and the sea respectively, the book will enchant readers with the lyrical quality of Maryanne’s writing and photographs as together Maryanne and her dog explore the landscapes right on their doorstep. Vividly bringing this stretch of Downs to life, join Maryanne and her dog as they discover the cliffs at Kingsdown, St. Margaret’s, Dover and Folkestone, as they take a dip into the sea and swing inland to the Downs and cut across the escarpments of Arpinge and Etchinghill towards Wye, losing themselves in glorious valleys and villages. A unique photographic book exploring the beauty of the North Kent countryside, from Downs to coast. With lyrical prose, enchanting photos, a beautiful dog – it’s an expression of joy at the wonder of nature.
