Regular price £19.99 Sale

Examines how the plays of Shakespeare and his contemporaries dramatise the Renaissance preoccupation with cosmetics. Dr. Farah Karim-Cooper explores the then-contentious issue of female beauty and identifies a 'culture of cosmetics', which finds its visual identity on the early modern stage. She also examines cosmetic recipes and anti-cosmetic literature focusing on their relationship to drama in its representations of gender, race, politics and beauty.
