Dramatic Difference argues that early modern women writers manipulated the class-based exclusivity of closet drama to justify their own contributions to this highly political genre. The book situates women writers' work in the context of their male peers' use of the genre and looks at how the genre's social and political orientation changed from the late sixteenth century through the Restoration.
