The Wise Woman of Hoxton

Taylor & Francis, 2003 - 147 páginas
Heywood's title-character, alternatively dismissed as a charlatan or cursed as an 'enchantress, sorceress and she-devil', outsmarts gullible citizens and rakish gentlemen alike in this exuberant city comedy, which winds its way through the colourful 'variety and rarity' of Cheapside and the Exchange to reach a festive conclusion in Hoxton. Cross-dressing and disguise add to the intrigue while drawing our attention to controversial issues of class conflict and female (in)subordination.
