Summary "The rise of the Inns of Court (the English legal societies) and their internal organization are described, followed by a study of these societies and their theatrical entertainments ... Special attention is paid to the masques and their elaborate productions between 1526 and 1683 ... The author's evidence indicates that the supposedly humorless profession of lawyers was sufficiently capable of ridiculing itself in dramatic satire, and of offering dramatic entertainment of excellent quality"--Cover.
