Feature of the Month: A Bold Stroke for a Wife

Susanna Centlivre was a leading comic dramatist of the early eighteenth century, and was particularly conspicuous as a female in a male world. Her Bold Stroke for a Wife was first performed in February 1718. Three hundred years later, we commemorate it as our Feature of the Month.

Capturing the monster: Mexico City in literature

From the first accounts of the soldier-chroniclers, such as Bernal Diaz del Castillo , who captured on paper the city of stone they had set about destroying, Mexico City has been written about ceaselessly. El Periquillo Sarniento , the first novel written and published in Latin America was itself a portrait of the 19 th century city, yet despite this, Mexico City is less well-known as a literary locality than London, New York, Paris and perhaps even Buenos Aires.
