Newman's study sheds light on the ideological complexity of gender, politics, and learned culture in the early modern period as it emerges from these intriguing and often bizarre plays.
"Newman expertly guides the reader through the maze of seventeenth-century scholarly commentary, uncovering alternative readings as well as daring interventions in order to decode the manifold meanings encoded in Lohenstein's work. Drawing on a vast wealth of materials, including dramas in other languages, she has achieved what no other philologist of Lohenstein has before. In short, this book is a most original contribution that ought to be of interest to a vast number of scholars outside German literature. . ."-- Journal of English and Germanic Philology
