about

In the great tradition of other volumes in the Records of Early English Drama, Lincolnshire presents an exhaustive collection of primary archival materials related to drama, music, custom, and ceremony in Lincolnshire county from 1236-1642. Covering the City of Lincoln, its cathedral, and numerous towns, villages, religious houses, and private households, its extensive research reveals the nature and development of drama in the area.

Among the topics addressed by editor James Stokes are the nature of parish drama in Lincolnshire; various dramatic traditions within the region; Marian drama, ceremony, and spectacle; the numerous contributions of women to drama and custom; and the wide variety of venues. Including thorough appendixes of related areas of interest, Lincolnshire is a comprehensive account of this region and provides remarkable insight into early English drama.

James Stokes is a professor in the Department of English at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.

'Stokes has done an outstanding job of locating and editing instances of "nearly every mimetic, musical, or ritualistic form of play used to entertain or otherwise engage an audience" in the country from c. 1235 to 1642.' - Robert W. Barrett, Jr., Speculum: vol86:02:2011
