Summary
"This book tracks the interconnections among pirates, pirates in print, and pirates on stage. Performance is the shared strategy for all three. Our chapters examine accounts of piracy in historical records, in adventure stories and romance, and, crucial to the emphasis on performativity, in stage representation. British pirates, in both print and performance, are discussed within a nexus of influence that cares very little for generic distinction beyond the constant of performativity. In fact and in fiction, the role-playing pirate is traced through dozens of stage performances, including the nautical Gothic melodrama, the adaptations of Byron, Scott, and Cooper, and the exploits of lusty she-pirates"--
