Abstract

The plays staged in London immediately after the Restoration are often said to reflect an unqualified royalism. In fact these plays are guarded and ambivalent in their politics, so that they may appeal to spectators who occupied various social levels and held often opposed political opinions. Where the Restoration appears specifically, it appears within the ordinary world of comedy, and always accompanied by some qualifying element that would have provided comfort to its victims.
