Abstract

A Look into The Cambridge Companion to English Restoration Theatre Raises the Question: What Are Friends For? The Cambridge Companion to English Restoration Theatre edited by Deborah Payne Fisk 2000: Cambridge University Press It’s alternately comforting and creepy to know that we are never or at least never need be — in anything we do — alone. From the Cliffs Notes on Thomas Mann’s Magic Mountain to Garrison Keillor’s public-radio cute guide to life on the prairies to the oceans of hand-holding how-tos in the For Dummies series, God bless companionship; nothing need seem strange to us anymore. We have traveling companions and longtime companions, and, too, we have Cambridge companions. And I guess the success or failure of such camaraderie has much to do with what you’re looking for in the relationship. Now I like variety of conversation, ready wit, ironic detachment, political attachments, and a forgiving nature. This is probably why heretofore I’ve found English Restoration theater such good company. Its appeal for theater makers and scholars alike is clear, and the fact that there is in it still much undiscovered country (from whose bourne Aphra Behn is only lately returned) makes it more attractive still.
