About the Author

Peter Duthie teaches in the English Department at Mount Royal College, Calgary.


At a time when serious scholars are reevaluating the merit and impact of Joanna Baillie's work, we finally have an annotated edition of her first volume of A Series of Plays. Sound research is impossible without authoritative primary texts, and Peter Duthie provides judicious editing, pertinent annotations and important philosophical explanations to make this Baillie edition useful for researchers and general readers alike." - Judith Bailey Slagle, editor of The Collected Letters of Joanna Baillie

"Peter Duthie has given teachers of romanticism and theater a gift; this elegant, accessible, and carefully contextualized edition of Joanna Baillie's earliest plays is an invaluable resource for demonstrating the centrality of Baillie's dramas to eighteenth- and nineteenth-century debates about women and performance, morality and the mind." - Catherine Burroughs, Wells College
