Abstract

The revaluation of the essential role played by women in Romantic theatre is one of the topics of the second section of the volume, 'On the Romantic Stage'. It is by now impossible to speak of Romantic Drama without considering the massive presence of women plawrights. The essay written by Cecilia Pietropoli deals with a woman dramatist that hides under past conflicts and rebellion against tyranny the present desire to get rid of patriarchal oppression. Her exploitation of the story of the Foscaris is compared to Lord Byron's interpretation of the same event.
