In a Manner Morall Playe: Social Ideologies in English Moralities and Interludes (1350-1517)


Liliana Sikorska

This book investigates and interprets various social ideologies in the moralities and interludes, dramatic texts of the late medieval period. Most of the selected plays have not been previously analyzed from the perspective of the linguistic and ideological content. Seen within the larger cultural context, mainly compared with other non-dramatic texts of the period, these texts represent rich sources of those social ideologies whose aim was to create principled individuals and a morally sound, well-functioning society.
Contents: Morality playe – Interludes – Ideology – Drama – Middle English literature.
