Subject: 	Early Theatre 9.1 (2006)

In Early Theatre 9.1 (June 2006), we have several articles that deal 
with different ways of looking at place and authority, gender and age.

"Seniority and Mastery: The Politics of Ageism in the Coventry Cycle" by 
Brandon Alakas focuses on elitism among the elders of Coventry; with 
special attention to The Weavers' Pageant (revised in 1534).

"Taking Liberties" by Matt Kozusko considers the place of the theatre in 
early modern London, shaking up accepted views of local authority in 
early modern London, and of critical authority among scholars now.

"Jonson's Gossips and the Stuart Family Drama" by Kristen McDermott 
takes issue with the authority of gender as well as age and place; she 
compares a masque performance at court with a children's company 
performance in a liberty.

"A Greatly Exaggerated Demise: The Remaking of the Children of Paul's as 
the Duke of York's Men (1608)" by Brandon Centerwall reexamines the 
question of age from another angle, looking at how a children's company 
made the successful transition to an adult troupe.

Finally, this issue has something you won't see anywhere else: two notes 
on the Rowley play, The Birth of Merlin
"Structure, Legitimacy, and Magic in The Birth of Merlin" by Megan Lynn 
Isaac
	and
"Bawdily Manipulations: Spheres of Female Power in The Birth of Merlin" 
by Monika Karpinska.

Book reviews also appear in this issue.
