Excerpt from Comedy Queens of the Georgian Era This book does not profess to be a theatrical history. It is simply a series Of biographical sketches of some of the most prominent English comedy actresses Of the Georgian period. As Leigh Hunt remarked, most people are more eager to hear of actors and actresses than of the members of other professions, and in reading accounts Of them most Of us incline more to the comic than the tragic, and more to the women than the men. But a record Of the strictly professional career of an actor or actress is apt to become a mere dry chronicle of successive representations. I have therefore dealt with these ladies, so far as was possible, more from the private than the professional point of view; and I hope that, in addition to the interest Of the separate personalities, these brief biographies may be found to have a further interest as a series of character sketches Of a dozen representative women who, in the course Of the eighteenth century, attained to eminence in the only profession then open to their sex. There is also another reason for dealing with them from the personal rather than from the professional standpoint. Colley Cibber lamented that the animated graces Of the player.

The eleven essays collected in The English Malady: Enabling and Disabling Fictions adopt perspectives from a variety of disciplines—history, sociology, music, theater, and literary studies—in order to examine manifestations of and writing about hysteria in Europe during the long eighteenth century. The collection demonstrates not only that hysteria was an important cultural metaphor for the Enlightenment—a fact sometimes obscured by scholarly emphasis on the study of hysteria as a nineteenth and early twentieth-century phenomenon—but also that the period’s writers sometimes considered hysteria a blessing as well as a curse. Implicit in the various arguments of this collection is the suggestion that hysteria might be considered an expression of early modern ambivalence about the emergence of modernity.
