JOHNSON CITY, TN. — Dr. Judith Slagle, professor and chair of the Department of English at East Tennessee State University, is co-editor of Prologues, Epilogues, Curtain-Raisers, and Afterpieces, a book of essays which is "a fresh analysis of the complete theatre evening that was available to playhouse audiences from the Restoration to the early nineteenth century."

Published by University of Delaware Press, the volume assembles 10 contributions focused on the plays, dance, and theatrical portraits from those bygone years. Also included are pieces concerning the additional entertainments that made a night at the theatre enjoyable from the 17th through the early 19th centuries: prologues, epilogues, pantomimes, and afterpieces.

Slagle is also editor of The Collected Letters of Joanna Baillie (1999) and author of Joanna Baillie: A Literary Life (2002).

Daniel J. Ennis, co-editor of the recently released book, is an associate professor of English at Coastal Carolina University. Among the contributors to the book is Dr. Robert Sawyer, an ETSU associate professor of English, who added to the volume his essay, "Prologues and Epilogues: Performing Shakespearean Criticism in the Restoration."
