Joan FitzPatrick Dean

ebook 978-0-8156-5284-7


"All Dressed Up is a memorable and necessary addition to our understanding of how historical pageantry was vitally important to the evolution of theatre and performance within an increasingly global Irish context."—Comparative Drama

"Dean’s reach is both deep and wide...she sketches the broad socio-historical contexts involved in the production of pageants, deftly stitching together different interest groups, political agendas, literary sources, and dramatis personae."—Canadian Journal of Irish Studies

"This brilliantly-conceived and evocatively written book could not be more timely—it deserves to become a classic."—Irish Arts Review

"A great strength of the book is the author’s ability to write with verve and wit, offering microscopic and telescopic views of these events. That is, while she examines these Irish paratheatricals as distinct to events within Ireland, she also places them in the broad streams of European and American social and cultural history."—Timothy McMahon, author of Grand Opportunity: The Gaelic Revival and Irish Society, 1893–1910
