Darryll Grantley has created a guide to that genre of entertainment, known as the Interlude. Starting in the fourteenth century, Interludes included a variety of works not considered part of cycle plays. This easy-to-use reference guide to each of the extant Interludes and fragments (c. 100) includes: account of early editions or manuscripts; authors or sources; modern editions; plot summary and dramatis personae; social issues in the plays; verbal and dramaturgical features; and staging directions, among other valuable details. A bibliography and appendices are also included.
Darryll Grantley is Director of Graduate Studies in the School of Drama, Film and Visual Arts, University of Kent.

Editorial Reviews

"the book's content and many features are excellent. Although most readers will not read the entire book as the reviewer did, reading it thus reveals the rich variety in the plays Grantley surveyed. His entries are extremely thorough and their contents suggest areas for further research. Finally, Grantley's bibliographies are especially helpful because they include works in languages other than English and both recent and older criticism. Overall, the book provides researchers with a wealth of materials to draw on for years." - Sixteenth Century Journal Laura Feitzinger, Brown, Converse College
